Inspiring, aspiring and empowering

Junior Achievement strives to help young kids be successful. It’s not just another ordinary youth organization designed to get kids off the street. This particular organization mentors and guides kids by allowing them the opportunity to see how major companies and businesses are run and operated through entrepreneur programs. I myself participated in the program in my teens and it has helped me decide my future.

it’s a great organization for youth who are unsure of their future with great opportunities to gain life-long work ethics and transferable skills that would benefit them in the long run.

Columbia College Chicago Holiday Tradition Continues

Join WCRX-FM Tuesday December 5, 2017 for our 15th Annual Holly Jolly Food Drive.  The LIVE Broadcast celebrates the season with visits from Chicago performers, celebrities and dignitaries all for a great cause, bringing meals to those in need.

Since 2002 Columbia College Chicago students, alumni, faculty and staff have helped raise over 45 thousand dollars and over 3 tons of non-perishable food for the Greater Chicago Food Depository.  Everyday the organization distributes 160,000 meals and works with more than 700 partner agencies and programs including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters.  Our collective efforts have fed thousands of people during the holiday season.

Stop by our live broadcast and donate a non-perishable food item or a canned good, bid on our auction items from supporting local businesses and celebrate the holiday season.

If you or your organization that would like to partner with WCRX-FM to help feed those in need, contact the station advisor Matt Cunningham at MCunningham@colum.edu, bring a food donation to the station or mail a check to Greater Chicago Food Depository to WCRX Holly Jolly, 33 East Congress, Chicago 60605.

Happy Holidays!
