Hear Together

WNRN’s commitment to being a voice for our community extends to sharing the real issues facing us, and together in partnership with the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, helping to identify ways to get involved and make a difference.

Through our “Hear Together” profiles, which run during regular programming on our station, we hope to shed light on the issues that face our area and inspire awareness and action.

Each piece is a way to spotlight the work of the countless non-profits and volunteers that work tirelessly to improve the lives of people in our area.

We hope by helping identify the ways to address them that we can enrich lives and make a lasting impact. “Hear Together” is just one way that WNRN is committed to making a lasting difference.
