It’s been said many times that the people of Greater New Bedford always seem to step up when there is someone in need. Many non-profits make it their business to help the people in their communities. One of them is My Brother's Keeper in Dartmouth. This organization has been especially effective around Christmas. Last year, they provided gifts and meals to more than 2,700 families in need from the North Shore to Fall River and Cape Cod. Director Josh Smith visits Townsquare Sunday this week to explain My Brother's Keeper, and how you can make this Christmas season brighter for those in need.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
