Give Love ~ Give Hope ~ Give Jefferson!

KPTZ supports United Good Neighbors who for over 60 years have championed local organizations that provide for the basic human needs of individuals and families in Jefferson County. UGN’s annual Give Jefferson campaign supports frontline efforts to deliver food, shelter, healthcare, education, and hope to those most in need in our community.  To all who are weathering uncertainty and recovering from crisis, Give Jefferson offers hope and the reassurance that we are not alone. In 2020, all donations to Give Jefferson will be matched by All In WA, a coordinated statewide relief effort providing immediate support for workers and families impacted by COVID-19. Visit UGN’s website for more information and a list of partner organizations.
