WAMC’s an­nual fund drive raises $1 mil­lion

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

WAMC North­east Pub­lic Ra­dio’s Oc­to­ber Fund Drive has raised $1 mil­lion to keep the station on the air.

“This is the fastest fund drive I can re­mem­ber,” said Alan Chartock, WAMC’s pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer. “We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to all of our WAMC com­mu­nity mem­bers for mak­ing this hap­pen.”

WAMC part­nered with The Sey­mour Fox Foun­da­tion and MVP health in­surance to help The Food Pantries for the Cap­i­tal District.

When lis­ten­ers do­nated to WAMC, The Sey­mour Fox Foun­da­tion then sup­plied The Food Pantries with enough food to feed 1,200 fam­i­lies of four for three months. With the help of MVP, WAMC lis­ten­ers helped to give 93,000 pounds of food to fam­i­lies in need in com­mu­ni­ties across the lis­ten­ing area.
