    Volunteers

    Thank You!

    We are proud of the WBGO volunteers, a fantastic group of dedicated Jazz 88.3 FM supporters. Thanks for donating your time during the Spring Membership Campaign.

    We also give thanks and recognition to the following restaurants, caterers and bakers in the New Jersey/New York metro area for supporting our campaign by providing delicious food for the volunteers and staff.

    WBGO could not do this campaign without all of our supporters. We welcome you to join us. If you are interested in becoming a WBGO volunteer or donating food during our next campaign drive, please contact Sylvia Brewer at sbrewer@wbgo.org or at 973-624-8880 ext. 235.
