Help KIYU a public radio station in Galena, AK

I read the Anchorage Daily News online in order to keep up with what is happening in Alaska. There is an article by Beth Bragg on a radio station KIYU in Galena that broadcasts to outlying villages for a 200 mile radius. KIYU is a public radio station and without the broadcasts, the community suffers. KIYU has had numerous setbacks which are all detailed in the article.

After having lived in Alaska for almost 20 years, I know that communication is so important to many of these communities. We are so bombarded with the media here in the lower 48 that we often forget that others need the basic services that a public radio station can offer in Alaska.

I wrote Beth Bragg and asked for an address where we can send donations. I received an email from the radio station with this information. "You can make a donation to:
KIYU or Big River Public Broadcasting Corp.
Box 165
Galena AK 99741

It is tax deductible. Thanks for your Support!"

I am making a donation and hope that many of you will make a donation. No amount is too small. Thank you!
