PBS Pledge Drive

NOV 24 - DEC 3

By now, most of us have cranked up the Christmas tunes, decorated the tree, and started our holiday shopping. Finally, it's time to kick back with some hot apple cider, binge-watch holiday shows, and take it easy because the sun's calling it a day before 6:00 p.m. Cheers to that!

During this festive season, we extend a special invitation to include your local PBS station on your holiday shopping list. When you donate to support PBS Texas Tech Public Media, you spread holiday cheer by helping provide quality programming and resources to our local community.

Our station not only enables access to your favorite national programs we also host local events, provide valuable resources, and produce shows that are fun, informative, and empowering.

Consider supporting Texas Tech Public Media, where your generous donation transforms into vibrant local content that stands apart. Your gift ensures West Texas continues to have access to freely accessible programs and resources. Together, we make a meaningful impact in our community.
