MERRILLVILLE- Lakeshore Public Media announced its Spring Pledge Drive in partnership with Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana, signaling a collaborative effort to nourish and support the local community. This unique collaboration, from April 25 to May 3, underscores Lakeshore's commitment to addressing pressing community needs while upholding its mission of providing enriching content and fostering community engagement.

Listeners are encouraged to participate in the pledge drive by visiting LakeshorePublicMedia.org/Give or calling 877-910-8989. By making a contribution, supporters not only ensure the continuation of quality programming but also contribute to a tangible difference in the lives of their neighbors.

"I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to collaborate on this campaign with Lakeshore Public Media, as it enables Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana to increase awareness for our service. With support from the community, we deliver much more than a meal; we deliver nourishment, care, and a sense of belonging to those we serve,” Meals on Wheels CEO, Sandy Noe, said.

In line with its mission to empower positive change, Lakeshore Public Media will use 10 percent of each donation made to the station to purchase meals to be distributed through Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana, directly benefiting individuals battling food insecurity in our region. This groundbreaking partnership not only tackles food insecurity head-on but also nurtures a spirit of togetherness and empathy amplified by the nonprofit public media’s radio broadcast.

"Our partnership with Meals on Wheels during the Spring Pledge Drive emboldens Lakeshore's mission of serving as a vital resource for Northwest Indiana. Lakeshore greatly values the partnerships we have with other nonprofit organizations throughout Northwest Indiana and we’re always excited to work together to positively impact the people in our community," Kurek explains.

As Lakeshore Public Media embarks on this endeavor, it remains steadfast in its commitment to enriching the lives of Northwest Indiana residents through informative and inspiring content. Through public radio, the station promotes educational opportunities, cultural enrichment, and community connectivity, furthering its mission of empowering and uplifting the community.
