IN this time of uncertainty, there's a fundamental truth that gives us hope - that together we can do extraordinary things.
Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back and heal.
On May 26 2020, 2MCE is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving.
Through this pandemic, 2MCE has continued to present programs with vital local information, news, interviews, and entertainment for you through this difficult time.
We've ensured your days start with live and local information on Live and LocalBreakfast with Tim, Jeff and Ron sharing the duties to feature interviews, news and community updates.
While most of the Talking Newspaper is safely staying home, Ross, Lisa and Megan are handling these duties solo each weekday at midday. Each weekday from 4pm, Brett and Megan share the program to make sure you get the latest from around the region on Community Drive.
Because social distancing measures must be complied with, all of this work is done by individuals, including the preparation, production and presenting of the programs. Lisa, Adam, and Rhonda are making sure pre-recorded programs are going to air and producing content which you expect to hear on our schedule.
So while most of our volunteers are staying home during the pandemic, this has meant an increased workload for us, as we abide by social distancing and either work from home or alternate days at the Station.
We are for the community and by the community, but we can't do this without you.
During this critical time, your gift to support the work of 2MCE is important to ensure we can continue to be a community station for the community. Your donation will help us purchase an external podcasting kit to enhance our outside broadcasting capabilities, allow us to record live events and ensure we can record the stories of our community for the community.
Go to our online shop https://2mce.shop.csu.edu.au/ OR call us on Tuesday, May 26 on 6338 4312.
Susan, a 2MCE volunteer, and co-producer of Cool Climate Living, will take your details over the phone.
Not only do we need your support, but we also need your help to spread the word.
Please tell your friends and family why you believe in 2MCE and encourage them to support 2MCE too!
