Connecting Our Communities...

This holiday season, help support the community that has sustained KRCB for over 25 years!

Please make a gift of financial support to KRCB in an amount that fits your budget.

But if you want to do more, or your family needs a helping hand, the best all-around telephone number for any community within our broadcast area is: 211.

211 is often staffed through your local volunteer center. In addition to providing resources that the caller may need, your 211 operator can also direct you to a source for volunteering locally or donating goods.

Here are examples of the calls people make:

  • Where can I donate clothing?
  • I need a place to sleep tonight.
  • Is there an after-school program near my child’s school?
  • Where can I find my elderly mother an adult day care program?
  • Where can I go to look for a job?
  • I need counseling – where can I go?

If your first language is something other than English, there are operators who speak a number of different languages (over 150 different languages throughout the 211 California call system).  You may be transferred to another center, but you will still get the local information that you need.

Telling Our Stories...

This month, KRCB releases the fifth series of special prorgrams that highlight the good work of our community partners.

In this series, KRCB focuses on our recent collaboration with Community Action Partnership.  Join us as we explore the local impacts of the economic crisis, in a documentary film called “Crisis At Home,” a co-production of KRCB’s Voice of Youth and Community Action Partnership.

The full film premieres later in December, but we wanted to provide a sneak preview just in time for the launch of the holiday season.
