Strike a Chord

Bringing awareness to local issues, and connecting volunteers with opportunities to make a difference.

WFUV is supported by a community of smart, curious, caring people. And at WFUV we're committed to supporting community organizations doing good work in the New York metropolitan area. We spotlight a particular issue every quarter. You'll hear Cityscape programs and news features that address those issues, and public service announcements for local organizations dealing with them. WFUV's volunteer Community Advisory Board is contributing their ideas; if you have any suggestions for themes, please contact

Kids Making a Difference: Summer, 2015

WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign is shining a spotlight on kids who care. The campaign is highlighting kids making a difference in their communities through volunteer efforts.

Congratulations to 8-year-old Maeve Ryan of Throgs Neck in the Bronx.  She was featured in our campaign and selected at random to win a bicycle courtesy of Miller's in Mamaroneck.
