It’s been a stressful couple of days so far for folks in the Pikes Peak region. KRCC’s News Director, Andrea Chalfin, her intern, Katherine-Claire O’Connor and I have been busy trying keep you informed about the Waldo Canyon Fire through all the channels available to us–on-air, Twitter, Facebook and via our website at www.krcc.org. We’re a small team with limited resources; we really appreciate all of your kindness and encouragement.
A number of KRCC’s staff has been affected by evacuations. And those of us not directly affected are concerned for our co-workers and their families and pets.
We decided that, given the current circumstance with the Waldo Canyon Fire taking precedence, we could not continue our membership drive on-air. Though we desperately need the funds as our fiscal year ends this week, we didn’t feel comfortable asking for contributions with an emergent event like the Waldo Canyon Fire happening.
We’re waiting to see which organizations have the greatest need as the impact from this fire evolves. We’re doing our best to broadcast those needs as we identify them. So far, the greatest needs we’ve identified have been informing you about evacuation areas and pre-evacuation areas, information hotlines, road closures and information for evacuees and their pets. See today’s Big Something. It features All Breed Rescue & Training and their, and other organizations’, response to the fire by housing evacuee’s pets. It is here.
We hope to resume the membership drive later this week. We have just over $40,000 to raise and with your help, we’re hoping to successfully complete this membership drive. If you would like to help us succeed, please make a contribution to KRCC, we’re happy to take your donation on the phone at 719-473-4801 / 800-748-2727 or online at www.joinkrcc.org.
Thank you for your support,
KRCC Station Manager
