The KNKX Winter Backpack Drive is continuing for the fourth year in a row! Made possible in partnership with our generous listeners and with local hunger relief organization, Northwest Harvest, this annual campaign puts the “community” in independent, community radio.
All gifts made today through Dec. 12 will support the programs you depend on at KNKX: the journalism that brings you thoughtful, investigative journalism and the music that makes your days vibrant and joyful. To top it off, as a special incentive, for every $100 raised we’ll fill a backpack with food for Northwest Harvest’s Three Squares program. Three Squares distributes these backpacks, filled with two days’ worth of meals, to food insecure children throughout Washington state. This program aims at ensuring children in need have nutritious, easy-to-prepare meals during times when other food sources may be scarce. You can learn more about Northwest Harvest and the Three Squares program here.
Over the course of this impactful partnership, listeners have helped fill over 5,000 backpacks! We hope you will join us in growing this impact even more with a donation to the KNKX Winter Drive.
News that will keep you updated on critical topics in the coming year, jazz and blues for your heart and soul, and food for a child in need? Your gift before midnight on Dec. 12 makes all of this possible.
