Community Outreach With Racquel Williams

Podcast Feed

Community Outreach is our new public affairs program which airs on Sunday mornings from 7-8 am. It's hosted by Beasley Media New Jersey News Director and Morning Anchor Racquel Williams. Central Jersey is rich with unsung heroes, and the focus of Community Outreach is to shine the spotlight on organizations, groups and individuals in Central Jersey that do positive work in and around the community.

From family support groups, members of the medical community and organizations that feed and house the homeless...to groups that help small businesses and entrepreneurs get off the ground. Community Outreach gives a voice to those who change lives and make a difference, often times with little fanfare. Who's making a difference in your community?
