New TV and Streaming Program Showcases Community Impact
The five-part series will air on DETV (Comcast 28) Mondays at 6 p.m. from November 7 to December 5, and will rebroadcast on DETV at select times each week. It will be available for streaming on DETVch.com, and on DETV’s and UWDE’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
Impact 365 highlights the people and tells the stories of those who have been empowered by programs and initiatives through the collective efforts of many partners. Episodes will examine how community collaborations – many of which are powered by UWDE – touch our neighbors and improve their lives every day. The program highlights the Delaware 211 Helpline that connects Delawareans with a wide range of social services. An episode in Spanish examines challenges facing the state’s rapidly growing Hispanic community.
The program is produced in partnership with DETV, which will celebrate the launch of Impact365 with a live preview on its Good Morning Wilmington show at 10:00 a.m. on November 7th.
Describing the move into cable television as an effective way to connect with the Delaware community, United Way of Delaware’s President and Chief Executive Officer Michelle Taylor says, “Our neighbors use cable TV, social media and the internet every day. This show reaches audiences where they are, highlighting solutions and the progress achieved by the collaborative efforts of community partnerships statewide. Our hope is that by showing the real people, demonstrating the real needs of our neighbors, and highlighting the good work underway in our state, Impact365 will inspire thoughtful discussion and prompt even more Delawareans to join in and be part of solutions.”
Impact365 is hosted by Tierra Fair, United Way of Delaware’s Vice President of Engagement and Partnerships and features community leaders and guest speakers offering an inside look at how on-the-ground programs that UWDE supports is driving positive impact across the state.
