Yesterday, the NHPR team put the finishing touches on setting up Pledge Central,  the location where about twenty volunteers and a handful of staff will sit and answer your calls and log your donations throughout the March Fund Drive. NHPR's fundraising success would not be possible without the two hundred volunteers who donate their time to assist in our year-long effort.

In addition to raising support for Granite Staters' beloved-and only-statewide public radio service, food is the other drive-time highlight around the station.
