WMBR would like to thank all the businesses who traditionally help us with our fundraiser.
Every year, WMBR gets immense support from local restaurants during our Fundraising Week. But this year, like last, our studios are closed, our DJs are all creating their shows in their own homes, and many of those same small businesses are struggling.
So, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank some of the local businesses who have kept us going in previous years. We hope you'll spread the word about these great local businesses, and support them as you’ve supported us in the past.
The following business have donated their important services to WMBR for many years:
Mirror Image, 190 Exchange Street, Pawtucket, RI. Longtime suppliers and printers of WMBR
t-shirts and other premiums for fundraising. This year, they also designed our jar openers, 60th
anniversary t-shirts, and hoodies.
Interrobang Letterpress, in Jamaica Plain, who usually supply us with printed fundraising material. Because we can't take your phone pledges directly this year, we unfortunately won't be sending you their wonderful hand-crafted reminder cards.
The following artists donated their talents and designs for use on our premiums and website:
