The KBUT Summer Membership Drive!
Help us raise $9,000 toward the KBUT Housing Crisis Connection!
KBUTs Summer Membership Drive starts July 19th! Help start the drive off strong before it starts by being an Early Bird! Your membership contribution will help us create the KBUT Housing Crisis Connection.
KBUT recognizes that the housing crisis, a problem for decades, has come to a head. It affects us too. When we broadcast the valley housing forum in June, we heard a lot of great ideas, but none that were going to solve this summer’s problems. It’s the nature of this problem; even an immediate fix would take months to build. While we wait for long term solutions to kick in, KBUT wants to help now.
KBUT helps our community by informing and connecting our listeners, and that's why we created the KBUT Housing Crisis Connection.
Like our Lost and Founds, Pet Patrol, and Ride Board, the Housing Crisis Connection is a way to connect people offering help with those who need it. We will collect and maintain a list of resources available for people living outdoors or in their cars, couch surfing, or who have otherwise been affected by the drastic shortage of affordable housing in the Gunnison Valley. If you’re someone who can offer a rental, a place for someone to camp or park their camper, a place to take a shower, or a temporary bit of roof over someone’s head, you can submit that resource by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
. People who have a need can search the list of available resources on our website, contact the station and KBUT will put them in touch with the person who submitted the resource.
We’re rolling out this addition to our arsenal of community services now because the problem is now and because we need your help to raise the $9,000 we need to offer this service to the Gunnison Valley.
