HERE AT WERS, WE HAVE A TRADITION OF SUPPORTING THE LARGER BOSTON COMMUNITY, WHICH IS WHY WE'RE PROUD TO PRESENT OUR FOOD & FRIENDS DRIVE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ROSIE'S PLACE, NOW IN ITS 11TH YEAR!
Here's how it works: Every single donation to WERS now through December 31st not only benefits the music you love, but it also fills two bags of groceries for a local woman in need.
It is our goal to reach 800 women in need!
But that's not all! When you donate $15 a month, this is what you'll set in motion:
- A warm and cozy WERS hat sent to you
- A warm and cozy WERS hat sent as a gift in your name to Rosie's Place
- AND two bags of groceries filled up for a woman in need
Join us in support of commercial-free, independent public radio and help us meet or exceed our goal of serving 750 women through Rosie's food pantry.
Last year, WERS served upwards of 750 women lunch in Rosie's dining room, the nation's oldest shelter for poor and homeless women. This year, that just isn't possible, despite the fact that food insecurity is at an all time high in the commonwealth. But that doesn't mean we still can't make a difference.
Our goal is to serve 800 women, and we're grateful for the support of an anonymous friend of the station for making that possible.
