LAWRENCE – In the spirit of holiday giving, listeners helped make Kansas Public Radio’s first Season of Giving mini-drive a success.
The on-air appeals Nov. 21 during NPR’s "Morning Edition" raised $9,235 to support KPR’s new, music and entertainment shows.
“We’ve never tried this before, and our listeners made it a great success,” Development Director Sheri Hamilton said. “It shows the generous spirit of our listeners and helped us erase a slight shortfall from our fall membership drive.”
Listeners can make a donation anytime online.
