WTIP thanks listeners for support during the “Bringing It Home” membership drive

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make WTIP’s “Bringing It Home” membership drive a success. In four and a half days, WTIP welcomed 48 brand new members and 145 renewing members. Altogether, we heard from 193 people and raised a total of $15,895. Not only did we meet our membership budget for the year… we also reached a milestone of 1,000 active members! Thank you to each of our members ~ your generosity strengthens our services and makes WTIP possible. Thanks also to all our wonderful volunteers, both on and off the air, and the businesses and individuals who donated food and other items. This was truly an amazing showing of support for community radio. Thank you!
