It is no secret...the state of Connecticut has budget issues that can leave many meaningful initiatives and causes reliant on other sources of help...like from us. One of the reasons we started iCRV Radio was to help "turn up the volume" on the important organizations doing amazing charity work. In showcasing these organizations, the hope is we can educate the listenership on ways they can help..or get involved in a small way...as we learn all the time baby steps can travel great distances if you have enough of them!
Anchoring our program lineup in the charity space is Feeling Good witht the Community Foundation of Middlesex County where we learn of the various funds they have, the grant recipients, the volunteers, board members...so many people where the dots get connected and amazing work gets done. We get to know the groups benefiting from the incredible grants from the Foundations...from Pay4ward to Simply Sharing...to area libraries...the list is so, so long...and growing...
Additionally, we meet groups like the Connecticut Chapter of the American Red Cross...or the Columbus House...Child & Family Agency...FoodShare and others....where we try and share their efforts, highlighting upcoming fundraisers...or ways people can come and support.
Please listen in to one or many of the shows below...follow them on Facebook...understand the mission and mandate...and maybe take one of those baby steps?
