WVPE members rely on us during these difficult times.

I need to say that I consider WVPE as essential as pharmacies and grocery stores during this frightening and chaotic time.  Knowledge has always been a prime antidote to fear and WVPE and NPR are the best news resources I have access to.  The connections provided by this radio station--connections to our community and to our world--are also essential:  practicing social distance is only going to become more difficult and more uncomfortable, and we need to access everything that will help maintain us through this crisis.  

I am especially grateful for the commitment and talent of of the staff of my ONLY radio station who provide the competent and compassionate services that we need so much right now.  And I am truly thankful for the listener members and underwriters that keep WVPE alive and well.

Geneele of Elkhart

You’re doing fine work trying to raise funds while physically distancing and no phone banking. Since this virus has finally caught hold of the public, I rely on 88.1 to get truthful updates and very creative stories. Keep up the great work!
