By Megan Orbin—

MUNCIE, IN—Woof Boom Radio and 104.1 HD1 WLBC take our role seriously as partners to those in the cities and towns we serve. WLBC continues to assist some remarkable organizations in making a difference in our community.

The following organizations were chosen to receive the WLBC Hometown Heroes Grant:

  • Delaware County Special Needs Prom/Events, April
  • American Legion Post 321, May
  • Delaware County CASA Program, June
  • Open Door Health Services, July
  • Roo’s Relief, August
  • ecoREHAB, September
  • Hillcroft Services, October
  • Guardian Scholars, November
  • FeedingTeam.org, December
  • Classroom Connections of East Central Indiana, January 2024
  • Animal Rescue Fund, INC of Muncie, February 2024
  • Soup Kitchen of Muncie, March 2024

This is not a cash grant but rather the commitment of WLBC resources – the station with a coverage area that reaches nearly one and a half million people. We can only award a select number of grants each year. Those organizations awarded a WLBC Hometown Heroes Grant will receive the most significant commitment of our resources. For the worthwhile causes and organizations that did not receive a grant, we will frequently support their efforts by providing access to our community calendar and announcements.
