Elbow Grease and Goodwill…

… That’s what’s fueling a new volunteerism initiative at KNOM this autumn.

Led by general manager Margaret DeMaioribus, KNOM volunteers and staff now participate in “Service Saturdays”: monthly opportunities to gather to do fix-it chores for the station or other work for the community. The service days are an added way to invite others to help.

KNOM tries to stretch your donated dollar as much as possible to be careful stewards of your generosity.
