To further our local outreach initiative, Save the Children’s sponsorship team was pleased to be featured on the award-winning For the People Public Affairs program on March 6th. John Voket, Public Affairs Director for Connoisseur Media and the host of For the People, interviewed Gary Shaye, the Senior Director, Board Relations and Emergency Operations for Save the Children. The conversation ranged from in-the-field stories from Gary’s 40-year career with Save the Children to the impact of sponsorship programs on children living in poverty in the U.S. and around the world.

Through this partnership, Save the Children was able to reach For the People listeners in Connecticut, Long Island, the greater NY metro area, Westchester/So. Putnam counties, and large pockets of southern MA and western RI.

The For the People episode is now available as a podcast on iTunes for download.

The sponsorship team would like to thank John Voket for his stewardship in creating this exciting opportunity to raise awareness of Save the Children and its sponsorship programs throughout Connoisseur’s broadcast area in Connecticut and neighboring communities.

And a special thanks to Gary Shaye for sharing his time and being our voice on the air!
