Thanks to the Food Donors from WMNF’s Fall Fund Drive – Oct 2021

Share this:

First of all, I want to thank all of the volunteers and staff who answered phones, kept the tally, pitched on your shows and others, supervised the phone room, ran cards to the studio, picked up food donations, and addressed gift envelopes.  You all keep us on the air and going strong, hopefully for many years into the future. 

Thanks to the Food Donors from WMNF’s Fall Fund Drive ~ October 5th & 6th/15th & 16th/ 24th, 25th & 26th, 2021

We’d never make it through without the generosity of these folks who gave us breakfast, lunch and dinner donations!! 

If you frequent these businesses or know these donors, please mention that you appreciate their support of 88.5FM Community Radio ~

A little recognition goes a long way… And many of them tell me people do come in and mention the partnership!!  Thanks so much.
