HomeTowne Television has launched its Annual Membership Campaign.

The President of HomeTowne TV, Fred Honold, and the Co-Chair of the Membership Committee, Roger Smith, explained the importance of the Annual Membership Campaign in a televised announcement.

“HomeTowne TV is a non-profit organization, but that doesn’t mean we can run our operations without funding,” Mr. Honold stressed. “Even a non-profit station like ours has many expenses. We get funding from several sources, but membership contributions are essential and critical. Membership contributions help us meet all of our operating expenses, but in particular they support the production of our high quality local programming. Only with your support can HomeTowne TV continue to be your best source of televised local information.”

Mr. Smith noted, “There are several ways to become a member of HomeTowne TV. If you want to charge your contribution to a credit card, the easiest way is over our website www.HomeTowneTV.org . Click on Membership and then click the DONATE button.”

“It’s also easy to contribute the traditional way by sending us a check in the mail,” Mr. Smith continued. “To get our contribution form, go to our website, www.HomeTowneTV.org , click on Membership and then click on the highlighted phrase, HomeTowne TV Donation & Membership Form. Print out the form and mail it in with your check.”

“If you are not on the internet, you can call our studio at 908-277-6310 and request that we mail you a membership packet. If you call after hours and get our answering machine, just leave your name and address and we will get the packet to you.”

Mr. Smith added, “Membership levels start at $35, but any contribution – big or small – is welcome. HomeTowne Television is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. We are also happy to accept matching gifts from companies which employ our members. Members just need to fill out the necessary matching gift forms and send them with their contributions.”

Mr. Honold concluded, “HomeTowne TV needs you. Please join us today!”
