November 22nd, 2014 1 comment

THANK YOU, WJTL LISTENERS!! Thank you for being part of the 2014 Extraordinary Give. Your support and generosity of WJTL truly is inspiring.  It was also wonderful to see so many other great orzanizations supported in an Extraordinary way.  Thanks also to the Lancaster County Community Foundation Team.  The idea of the Extra Give – to inspire people to give (with enthusiasm) is a wonderful idea. We are so thankful that we live in an area that so generously supports non-profit organizations and their mission. Almost four and a half million dollars was raised for all the organizations IN JUST ONE DAY.

You helped WJTL raise $113,085 during Extraordinary Give 2014. WJTL will also receive a percentage of the $315,000 stretch pool dollars.
