Reason #20: Volunteers

We simply couldn’t do what we do without generous volunteers who give their time and talents to WNIJ.

Jan Booth, from DeKalb, says she volunteers at the station because she believes in the mission of public radio. “WNIJ has been a part of my life since they came on the air. I rely on them to bring me balanced, fair and accurate information, as well as smart and engaging entertainment. I volunteer whenever I can by answering phones and helping prepare mailings. It's important to me to do whatever I can to keep this valuable resource present and thriving in our community.”

And we are thankful for Jan and the hundreds of volunteers over the past thirty years who have helped make a connection with listeners by stuffing envelopes, answering pledge calls, and serving as “public radio ambassadors” in our community.
