Each Red Box is filled with a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, vegetables, milk, eggs, bread, butter, a dessert, and a game for a family to enjoy. We raised enough donations from our listeners to provide 501 meals, and our staff volunteered time to help pack meals.

WMNI airs a weekly local public affairs program called Columbus Concerns. Some topics covered this past year include homelessness, veterans’ issues, internet access to minority communities, the Central Ohio housing crisis, environmental issues, and the continued drug crisis.

WMVO-AM, Mount Vernon

All our AM stations have special fund-raising projects that they have created. The largest is WMVO’s Food for the Hungry that was created by our own Charlie Kilkenny. It raises $50,000+ annually for the community. This summer, Food For The Hungry opened a special grant process to help organizations throughout Knox County eliminate the food gap for children and teens during summer vacation. Hundreds of Knox County minors’ primary source of food is the free or reduced breakfast and lunch given to them at school. There is a significant need for supplemental food throughout their summer break.

WRFD-AM, Columbus

WRFD hosts daily live talk shows that are open to community leaders including politicians, law enforcement, and directors of nonprofits. In times of emergency, we provide listeners with information to keep them safe, including being able to call in when they have nowhere else to turn and just need someone to talk to. Our station is available to listen and pray with our audience and, if needed, direct them to resources.
