We’re just moving into the second week of our Spring Fund Drive. So far we’ve raised over $1,000 on our way to reaching our goal of $5,000. Thanks to those listeners who have pledged and paid their donations. We had our first drawing for gifts for all those who paid their donations on line or in person during the first week of our drive. There were a lot of items like jackets, backpacks, T shirts and caps given away. The big gift was a $25 gift card from First National Bank Alaska. We want to thank AVCP, AVCP Regional Housing Authority, CVRF, Donlin Gold, LKSD, KuC , Yuut Yaqangviat Flight School and First National Bank Alaska for their support.
Next Monday, March 18th, there will be another drawing for more gifts for all those listeners who donate by the end of next week. There will be more great give away items including a second $25 gift card from First National Bank Alaska.
Then on Wednesday March 20th we will hold our final drawing for all donors during the previous two weeks up to March 20th. On the list of gifts are a 20,000 Alaska Airlines mileage certificate donated by GCI, one round trip ticket anywhere ERA Alaska flies including Anchorage and one round trip ticket anywhere Grant Aviation flies.
The focus of this drive is our programs and services for the youth of our communities. These include our Alexie Isaac Memorial Scholarship, our basketball coverage of regional and state small schools championships and our student intern program in partnership with the Kuskokwim Learning Academy. If any or all of these programs are important to you, if local public radio is important to you, please take a moment to visit KYUK on line to click on the Donate button, call 543-0244 during regular business hours or stop by the station in person to make a donation.
Public radio is your radio. Your partnership is vital in keeping the local KYUK public media programming and services you rely on alive and well in Bethel and the Y/K Delta.
Thanks for your support of local public media.
