The South Central Community Action Program got the opportunity this month to help the local PBS station, WTIU, by donating our time to answer phones and take pledges for a few hours one night.
According to a letter we just received from WTIU Member Services Coordinator Laura Grannan, the help of volunteers this month enabled the station to raise more than $20,000 from 163 pledges during its June Fund Drive. The successful fund drive assisted WTIU in making its projected revenue goals for the year, Grannan wrote, and gives it a strong foothold in the new fiscal year.
This was the third time that SCCAP has participated in a WTIU fund drive. We appreciate the chance to help out the station and to bring some additional attention to our organization.
Thanks to those of you who made donations during the fund drive!
