About Mix Cares

The Mix 92.9 team strives to lend support to our community throughout the year.

From our March of Dimes Breakfast for Babies and Walk America to our sponsorship of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Mix family is there to lend a hand to our neighbors in need.

During the holiday season, Mix 92.9 is an advocate for the Salvation Army through the “adoption” of hundreds of Angels in need of holiday gifts. We also launched the successful “Mick’s Book Buddies” program, where we visit local schools and read to the children.
