We Thank Our Dedicated Volunteers During National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, 2017

This week WNET, National Friends of Public Broadcasting, PBS, CPB, APTS and Protect My Public Media join together to thank volunteers for their efforts on WNET’s behalf. These are station volunteers, board members, community advisory panel members, APTS Leadership Council members, and Protect My Public Media advocates who have all played a vital role throughout the history of public media.

WNET recognizes and celebrates the individuals who offer hands-on, day-to-day support to departments throughout the station during National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, 2017. Volunteers donated more than 6,000 hours during the last calendar year to WNET.

In addition to those we see and interact with in the offices, there are many others who volunteer on WNET’s behalf. The Community Advisory Board provides an important link to our constituents in the tri-state viewing area. The Friends of Thirteen are strong advocates for the station both in the community and in Washington DC. They help organize Capitol Hill Day, when station representatives meet one-on-one with their local legislators to promote the work of public television and the importance of sustained Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) funding.
