It’s the time to be thankful for Erie’s media

Bells are rung. Soup cans are collected. Fundraisers are advertised. Food baskets are delivered. Special newspapers sold.

This is the time of year that when we count our blessings here in Erie, we should include the generosity of our media organizations. Over the past few weeks, and in the next weeks to come, Erie’s media comes to help the needy and hurting in our community. The list is impressive (and this is not an exhaustive one):

  • WICU food collection for Second Harvest
  • Lamar Advertising providing free space to raising funds for Grace Church’s ServErie Thanksgiving food baskets
  • Country 98’s radiothon for the Erie City Mission
  • WJET radio collecting coats for the needy with Coats of Light
  • Times Old Newsies raising money for the Erie Times Needy Fund through their special newspaper on Dec. 5th.
  • Personalities from throughout the media ringing the bell and manning the kettles for the Salvation Army.

There are many more small and large activities that go on this time of year where our media lends its support to helping the less fortunate in our community. Because of what they do, we give thanks!
