Volunteer for WHQR's Summer 2014 Pledge Drive

Members of Wilmington Art Association at our Spring 2013 Pledge Drive.

WHQR needs individuals to answer phones during our  Summer 2014 Pledge Drive. Pledges are taken by computer, so all volunteers should feel comfortable typing and using the system. Shifts begin with a brief orientation and can be a fun way to meet other Public Radio fans and hang out with the WHQR staff! To sign up, email Jarred at with the specific day and time that you would like to take and your name and contact information.
