MILWAUKEE PUBLIC SCHOOLS Triple A/Urban WYMS (88NINE RADIOMILWAUKEE)/MILWAUKEE is in the midst of "Meet The Need: 50 Organizations, 50 Days," a campaign to highlight community groups working to help the needy in the MILWAUKEE area. The station is airing short features on a different group each day to help raise awareness of their efforts.
"We want to shine a light on these groups during a time of year when the plight of people in need is most visible, and when the least fortunate among us feel the need most acutely," said the station's Executive Director MARY LOUISE MUSSOLINE. "We picked a large number of groups to highlight because the community need is so great and dollars and volunteers are critical. By telling the stories of so many organizations, we hope to give listeners a diverse choice of groups from which they’ll select at least one that moves them to action."
