Local Nonprofits Make A Difference

Thank you to EVERYONE who volunteered to staff our phones during our 2024 spring "Stronger Together" pledge drive, especially the amazing local nonprofit organizations!

Much appreciation to all of the local non-profit groups who answered the pledge line phones for 10 days along with dedicated community members, programmers, committee and board members. 

Their volunteer time keeps independent community radio going strong which in turn gives everyone in our community a chance to be heard. Musicians, Activists, Artists & YOU!
