Give From the Heart Radiothon

Once again I had the pleasure of visiting the good folks over at AIR 106.1 FM radio station in Airdrie, yesterday.  We were promoting the Community Links program through their Give From the Heart Radiothon. 

As you know, the Community Links program has a branch office over here in Beiseker.  It's located in our new Community Services Building at the corner of Fifth Street and Third Avenue, along with the Playschool and the Library.

It's open two days a week (Tuesday and Friday) from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  The programs they offer there are amazing!  They can provide help and support for those who need it.  And if they can't help you on the spot, they'll find out who can and get you connected.  If you're dealing with an issue and you're looking for solutions or you want to learn more about something that's affecting you, or maybe just need someone to talk to, Community Links is your place!  Drop in and get a publication called CONNECTING with a description of all their programs. 

By the way, that same publication is available at the Beiseker Village Office. I think you'll be amazed at the things they do over there!

Each year Community Links and AIR 106.1 FM holds a telethon to raise money to help insure the wonderful work they're doing keeps going. 

I had two other meetings that day, so I had to bug out mid-morning, but they were already coming in on $10,000 pledged so far!  I'll let you know what the grand total was when I find out.  If you missed the Telethon, drop off your donation at the Community Links branch here in Beiseker or you can donate online through Canada Helps.  Remember; many small donations yields a huge success!

  1. Community Links was th best idea the powers that be have had for years. Some of the people who use their services may not have the time, a vehicle or gas money to go to Airdrie, but they serve a valuable purpose helping people navigate through all the various social help programs. I running my donation over to the office this week....
