COVID Community Resource Page


CFRC 101.9 FM remains open to volunteers who are well and keen to continue bringing you great local programming.  However, as our volunteers' health and safety is of primary importance, we may rebroadcast programs in the coming weeks to ensure their safety and provide you with music and spoken word programming on schedule.  We have, however, closed the doors to station visitors and have postponed volunteer training until the first week of April 2020.  Our commitment to keeping you informed remains and with regard to COVID 19, we have developed this resource page to find assistance for services community members can still access in this difficult and rapidly changing period.  If you have knowledge of a community-oriented non-commercial resource/service you would like to share, please email [email protected]  Our volunteers that are still able to come can also share this information on the airwaves.  Please do follow us on twitter, facebook and instagram as well for programming details and useful information about resources and services still available.

Be safe, healthy and happy!

Have news on community resources and organizing to assist community members in response to COVID 19? 

Please email [email protected] if you are aware of community (not commercial) resources and organizing serving the community in response to Coronavirus. Please send a description and a direct URL link and we'll post it to our page and CFRC volunteers can use this page to tell our listeners about these resources on the airwaves!
