KRCL QUIET COMMUNITY DRIVE

August 5, 2015 in Uncategorized by KrclAdmin Print

This summer, KRCL is trying something less disruptive than a summer fundraiser – we’re holding a “Quiet Community Drive”, to raise funds needed to power KRCL. For each donation of $60 or more, in addition to the usual KRCL t-shirt or other gift, you will provide a gift to the entire community. We’re partnering with the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective, The Utah Food Bank, and the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah for these gifts. Give a little this summer and it will go a long way! Please help us reach our goal. Click here to contribute now, and let KRCL  tell the stories of our community partners. KRCL is only here because of our listener’s investments.

  • The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah – Through wildlife rehabilitation and education we empower the community to engage in conservation and responsible stewardship of wildlife and habitats. You can provide a week’s worth of food to an orphaned baby bird as a thank-you!
  • The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective – The mission of the Bicycle Collective is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households. You can provide a bicycle helmet to a student at the collective as a thank-you!
  • The Utah Food Bank – For over 100 years, the Utah Food Bank has stayed true to its mission of serving those in need throughout our state. Last year the BackPack Program distributed more than 60,000 backpacks with food to help ensure hunger-free weekends for children during times when they don’t have access to school meal programs. You can provide a backpack of healthy food to an at-risk child as a thank-you!

This end-of-tour run marked the beginning of an extended hiatus for the band, with no shows planned for 1975. The movie also faithfully portrays the burgeoning Deadhead scene. The film features the “Wall of Sound” concert sound system that the Dead used for all of 1974.
