The Community Council has been distributing long-sleeved shirts in all the locations they have offices.

The Community Council of Idaho will be handing out long-sleeved shirts this Thursday at its annual shirt distribution event. Every year the non-profit collects shirts and gives them to farm workers to make sure they're protected from long days in the sun.

Karina Llanes was a newsroom intern from the College of Idaho during the spring semester of 2022:
When I was a University of Utah freshman, I marched up the hill to KUER to hand deliver a $20 check. The receptionist was so excited a teen listened (and donated!) to public radio that she told me to call the news director for an internship. I did and I've been working in media ever since.
