'Tis the season of giving, and 96.1 The Eagle has teamed up with the Utica Rescue Mission to help those in need.

The Perfect Gift is part of 'A Christmas Wish' with The Utica Rescue Mission. We're asking Eagle listeners to adopt a full-time resident from the Enriched Living Center and purchase three gifts on their wish list. Items they need or want for the holidays can include hats, gloves, and warm clothing.

With your generosity, we have helped over 150 people enjoy a wonderful holiday (See photos here). Please continue with your support so we can do it again this year!
