December 23, 2020 - Shelter From The Rain, a local nonprofit, recently announced that WSAV’s Kim Gusby is the winner of their 2020 Christmas Carol Contest for single mothers in Savannah.

Due to the pandemic, the organization was unable to host their annual Christmas Concert in person this year. In an effort to stay safe during the holiday season, the organization transformed their annual Christmas Concert into a virtual Christmas Carol Contest featuring Kim Gusby, Dedrick Clark, Lyn Avenue, Laiken Love, Porschia Mitchell, The Savannah Bananas, Reese Bailey and The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra.

The funds raised through this online fundraiser will provide assistance to single mothers and children in need. This year, the organization also celebrated their 10-year anniversary and the funds raised online will support their Mental Health for Single Moms program, their Virtual Tutoring Services for Students of Single Mothers, their Community Diaper Bank and their ”Hope For the Holidays” Christmas Giveaway.

The online fundraiser ended on Dec. 20, 2020. Caroler Kim Gusby won the competition by raising $762 which was 305% of her goal. The organization raised over $12,000 through this online fundraiser for single moms. For more information, visit www.christmascarolcontest.com.
