Valley Media Works fundraises to continue service

Eau Claire (WQOW) — The Chippewa Valley’s only public access media center is asking for help raising money to keep the service running.

On Tuesday, 20 percent of all proceeds from the Growler Guys on London Road went directly to Valley Media Works, as a part of their "Tapping into the Community" initiative.

Valley Media Works is a non-profit, public television station that provides local creative, educations and government programming.

"We’ve been serving the Chippewa Valley for a long time, and we hope to continue to serve the Chippewa Valley for another 40, 80, 120 years," said Heather Rigby, Valley Media Works outreach & communications coordinator. "Make sure our community has access to the technology that’s changing, and giving them the ability to learn these skills and use their voice in a really unique and helpful way."

Rigby also told News 18 any money donated helps offset the costs of their programming and the video production classes they offer.
