Every dollar donated to WDIY during this year's Fall Membership Drive will help provide meals to those in need in the Lehigh Valley. For every $100 WDIY receives in donations, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley will provide 21 meals to individuals and families in our community. WDIY has partnered with Valley National Financial Advisors to cover the costs of the meals.
The partnership will allow 100% of WDIY member donation to stay with the station, while Valley National Financial Advisors covers the costs of the meals.
WDIY's 2020 Fall Membership Drive is scheduled to begin on-air on Monday, October 12, 2020. WDIY will be running our Pre-Drive Campaign in the two weeks leading up to the drive. The Pre-Drive will not interrupt any on-air programming, giving listeners the opportunity to support the station early. The more donations received early during the Pre-Drive Campaign, the closer we will be to our goal, and the sooner we can wrap up the Membership Drive.
In the fall of 2019, WDIY member donations resulted in Second Harvest delivering 11,951 meals to those in need in our community.
