Your Support Right Now Is Essential Help Us Reach Our Annual Goal Last year was especially difficult for members of our public media family who suffered crippling losses after Hurricanes Florence and Michael. Consequently, fewer UNC-TV viewers have been able to contribute. We’re weathering this situation through careful use of resources—making every dollar count—to provide lifechanging television that educates, informs and alerts North Carolinians, and offers a safe haven for our children. But to stay strong and ever at the ready for you, UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina must raise $3.2 million by June 30 to reach our annual fundraising goal. The goal is daunting, but UNC-TV can overcome this difficult time if every member gives even a modest contribution. Look for this envelope in the mail and please give as generously as possible to help keep the programs and services you cherish coming for another year. Thank you.

Programming: Bryan Sodemann

Summer Love for You & UNC-TV...
