How Your Gift Helps This Holiday Season

Nov 13, 2017

Stories that make you think, news coverage that connects you to people around the globe, music that moves and inspires: Don't let 2017 end without making your gift to support public radio in your community! 

This holiday season is a great time to support WKMS and help people who need it, too, thanks to two great community partnerships. When you give before December 13th at midnight you can help provide:

1)        Food for Families in Need: For each gift to 91.3 WKMS-FM, our friends at True North Yoga in Paducah will donate 5 pounds of food to Paducah Cooperative Ministries' Food Pantry. This is up to 100 donors or 500 pounds of food! What a great impact for hungry families in our region. 

2)        Instruments for underserved Children: For each $1000 raised for the WKMS classical signal, Symphony Supply of Paducah will donate an instrument to be used by underserved children in our region. This is up to $5000 or 5 stringed instruments for the Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club of Paducah. The instruments will be used to start a music program and will be available to be checked out for free by children who may not otherwise have access to a musical instrument in their home or school. 

Side note: If you have a musical instrument of any kind you'd like to donate to the cause, you can contact aburnett2@murraystate.edu to help!

You can give right now securely ONLINE to be part of this community philanthropy effort, or call in during our on-air mini-drive December 11th for Classical or December 12th-13th for 91.3 WKMS. 

Your gifts for WKMS before year-end help pay for programs you rely on in 2018 and help strengthen your community. Thank you!

Our sincerest thanks to our partners:
