WAMC’s annual fund drive raises $1 million
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.
