Due to COVID-19 the 2020 radiothon will be postponed. It with worry that we bring you this message. As you, the listener, know, radiothon is our largest fundraiser of the year and brings in a considerable amount of money for the station. In recent years we have pulled between $40,000 and $50,000 in generous donations. Our method for wrangling donations involves phone banking which puts groups of people in very confined spaces. Not so healthy these days. Secondly, our open house, when donators pay up and receive a nice gift, involves more people in more terrible closeness! While this is normally a good thing, in 2020 it is a major danger.
WCSB will be looking in to future fundraisers down the line when it is safer. Our top priority this year is keeping our programmers, listeners and community as a whole safe. In the meantime, anyone who has been saving up their radiothon donation all year long and still really, really wants to give it to WCSB is more than welcome to. At the top of our websites home page is a donate tab. Once there you are welcome to give to your heart’s desire.
We once again thank you all who have ever donated. You make WCSB the ultra-strong super power it is today.
Keep looking for updates about when we can return to live broadcasting and keep safe!
