Each month Vecino gives back to the community through partnerships with area non-profit organizations.
This month, independent beer will support independent radio through our partnership with WCOM.
Located at the end of our East Main Square building, WCOM is a community radio station broadcasting a 100-watt signal from an antenna at Scroggs Elementary School in Southern Village in Chapel Hill on 103.5 FM. WCOM was the first low-power FM community radio station in the area to be set up under a program established by the Federal Communications Commission in 2000 to license “LPFM” (Low Power FM) stations. Low-power FM is grassroots radio – an effort to counterbalance the increasing concentration of radio ownership by a few large corporations.
This month, 10% of ever Vecino Tea Time IPA will be donated to support independent radio, now playing from your car to your pocket and everywhere in between!
