      Portsmouth Community Radio Makes Donation To “Occupy New England” for Disaster Relief in NJ from Hurricane Sandy
      March 27th, 2013

      Ryan Hirsch_Jean Proulx_03_28_13_WordpressDuring Portsmouth Community Radio’s 2012 Fall Fund Drive we promised to make a donation to another non-profit of $1 for every pledge we received.

      With the kind of winter weather that we have had, and a busy schedule on his part,  it took us awhile to get Ryan Glen Hirsch (photo left and below) a NH volunteer of Occupy New England, to come to our studio to receive a check in the amount of $211 for Occupy New England’s disaster relief project that is ongoing in New Jersey as a result of Hurricane Sandy…. their project is called Occupy Sandy.

      On Thursday, March 28th, Ryan made it to our studio where our Volunteer Coordinator and Pledge Drive Director, Jean Proulx (photo left), presented him with a check during Station Talk (Thursdays, 1-1:30 pm).   Jean had a chance to interview Ryan about the great work Occupy New England is doing to help the people of New Jersey who are still in need of support even after all this time… that gives us a sense of the tremendous amount of damage Hurricane Sandy caused.

      Ryan Hirsch of Occupy New England_03_28_13_WordpressPortsmouth Community Radio was happy to make the donation and we thank all of you who made pledges during our Fall Pledge Drive so that we were able to share your generosity with another worthy non-profit.  That is what being a “Community” radio station is all about… and we will continue this policy with our upcoming Spring Pledge Drive May 3rd to the 9th.
