TPR Events & Initiatives

From April 4th to the 11th, Texas Public Radio took to the airwaves to encourage listeners to pledge their support. The spring fundraising goal was our most ambitious ever.

It took countless pledges by individuals and businesses and hard work by every TPR staff member, plus 125 volunteers fueled by a smorgasbord of food provided by 15 local eateries to do it, but we raised $537,304 -- $63 more than our goal.

On Saturday, March 29, Texas Public Radio partnered with the community and volunteers to clean-up an area near the Mission Reach.

The Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project is restoring an eight-mile stretch of the San Antonio River into a quality natural riparian ecosystem. The San Antonio River Authority has given TPR the opportunity to adopt a 3.4-acre stretch of natural area adjacent to the project, which we are calling the TPaRbor.

Texas Public Radio's "Silver Solutions" is a free event spotlighting programs and services provided by institutions that support San Antonio seniors and their caregivers. This year's event will take place on Monday, May 18 from 10am-2pm at the Barshop Jewish Community Center.  

Silver Solutions is a free resource fair for seniors and their caregivers and families. 

Texas Public Radio learned late Wednesday night that one of our volunteers, Roger Miller, was killed in a head-on collision near Floresville. Roger was truly a civic-minded individual. A former SAPD officer, Roger started volunteering at TPR last year. Please join us in thinking of Roger's friends and family at this time.
