Green Bay, WI -- A local radio station is making some positive waves to help those in need. 91.1 The Avenue gave away $71,500 in grants to local non-profit organizations on Monday. Thanks to the help from area corporate sponsors and listener support, they say they can use the airwaves to amplify the needs of these organizations.
"We realize dollars are limited for people to give, and if we can help non-profits in or own backyard extend the reach, that's really fulfilling for everyone who works here and our members who support us and the corporate sponsors as well," said Brad Langley, President and CEO of 91.1 The Avenue.
So far, 91.1 The Avenue has raised more than $211,000 in grants for non-profits throughout Northeast Wisconsin.
