The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley has received a half-million dollar donation from the Air Products Foundation, which will go to three community organizations working to expand education and food access. WDIY’s Mike Flynn has more.

The funds will go to support the Greater Easton Development Partnership's West Ward Market, the Bethlehem Area School District and Hispanic Center Lehigh Valley.

Mike Flynn is a local host for WDIY's Thursday broadcast of NPR's All Things Considered. He has been listening to public radio since he was student teaching in the early 1980s. Public radio and, in particular, NPR news helped him tremendously as a history teacher at Emmaus High School. Now retired, he wants to help the station that helped him. He feels honored to be able to share what he calls a treasure with his community.
Sarit "Siri" Laschinsky is WDIY's Interim News and Public Affairs Director.
