We run a tight ship here at WMNF, and all the resources we have go towards delivering great radio. Here are some things that would make it easier for us to bring you the radio you love. If you can help, give us a ring at 813-238-8001. Thanks!
Auction or Chance Drawing Prize Items
WMNF is always having concerts & we have a chance to win drawing at many. We are looking for businesses that can donate items for prizes or gift certificates for these events. Please contact Miss Julie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a donation suggestion. Or call 813-238-8001, ext 100. Thanks!!
Have you got too many linens in your linen closet? WMNF can use those extra hand towels or smaller sized bath towels for performers at our events. There's always an event coming up SOON...Heatwave 2014 is May 9th & 10th!!
Canopies or E-Z UP tents
Do you have any extra 10 x 10 pop-up tents laying around gathering dust? WMNF can use them for our events (we have one or two, but also have lots of upcoming outdoor festivals to do outreach at & more requests are pouring in). We could put your canopy to good use...and soon. Hope to see you all out there!!
CD & Record Donations
WMNF's Annual Music Sale, with CDs, DVDs, Electronic Equipment & more (sorry, never computers) is scheduled for Saturday, March 14th, 2015 And, it isn't just records anymore! We accept CDs, DVDs, stereo equipment, musical instruments, memorabilia, plus some other music related stuff. It will be at the Howard Johnson's in downtown Tampa (right by the Straz Center). Lots of free parking, a restaurant right inside the hotel, and a cornucopia of sound and such for you to buy. Have stuff to donate????? Yes, Please! You can just bring it during regular office hours (9-6pm, M-F) or call ahead and we will schedule a time. We are working on some remote drop off locations too. Please bring your donations to: WMNF, 1210 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Tampa, FL 33603 ~ Call 813-238-8001 if you have questions. OTHER LOCATIONS to be announced as we near the event date.

We could use new or gently used clipboards. Letter or Legal sized clipboards could be given a new purpose here at WMNF 88.5FM.
