Give A Mask Day - A Great Success

Thanks to Claire Appling and our great listeners THIRTY-TWO masks will be donated. Thanks to all who pledged Friday and every day!

Friday was Give a Mask Day - for each and every pledge made to WHQR today, HQR Community Advisory Board Member Claire Appling will sew a mask to be donated to those in need in our community. Masks will be sent toOSMS Cape Fear to be distributed to a variety of groups in the region from nursing homes to hospitals to protesters to community groups. Donate onlineor call 888-848-5663. 

Our goal for the Critical Stealth Drive is to raise our entire summer goal of $100,000 with only short announcements and messages on social media and we're almost half way there! To ensure there will be NO program interruptions, we need to meet our goal by June 22nd. By making a gift TODAY, you will help keep the news free and accessible to you and your community. Plus, you'll help get masks into the hands of those in need. 

Thanks to all of you! And thanks to Claire – check out her masks here
