In May 2015, WMRC-First Class Radio & Asphalt Engineering of Bellingham embarked on a fantastic new project to improve our community. Each month we will air a series of over 180 monthly commercials that featured a community organization that is making a difference in the Greater Milford Region. The initiative was such a success that we will continue it indefinitely and we invite you to apply for a future grant.
These sixty-second commercials are called “Hometown Hope” and will be recorded with a member of your organization along with a representative from Asphalt Engineering and WMRC Radio.
The “Hometown Hope” initiative will serve to inform the public on projects your organization is undertaking, and can also be used to recruit new members and highlight fund raising opportunities. In short what would 180 commercials on the radio, and a comprehensive multi-media campaign do in helping you, help our community? We think a lot!
The actual value of a month on the Community Spotlight is $3,000.
If your organization is interested in being featured then we ask that you fill out the attached request. Our selection team will review these requests, and we will announce our first recipients the week of June 15, 2015.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Tom McAuliffe at (508) 473-1490, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
