WPMT York, Pa., is backing a fundraising effort, Give Local York, to help support York County charities and services. “Our plan is to be a part of making Give Local York a success for years to come, and to play witness to the impact that this annual event has on the place we call home,” said Christopher Topf, WPMT’s general manager.
Give Local York takes place on Friday, May 3, when donations can be made at Give Local York’s website. Donors may select a charity from more than 300 participating organizations, and the overall pot will be increased by local sponsors.
Last year, Give Local York raised nearly $1,500,000, and WPMT is happy to help the organization raise even more this year.
“Being a local broadcaster, WPMT FOX43 has a duty to inform, protect and benefit the community that we live in through a multitude of platforms,” said Christopher Topf, WPMT’s general manager.
“Here at the station we expect more out of ourselves and look to go above and beyond. Our plan is to be a part of making Give Local York a success for years to come, and to play witness to the impact that this annual event has on the place we call home.”
WPMT will report on the progress of Give Local York donations all day on Friday, May 3, through ongoing coverage across its entire news broadcast day.
