Chattanooga, TN – WUTC, like all not for profit organizations, tries hard to cover all of its many expenses. Often listeners have helped us meeting some of these specific needs. Currently, the radio station is trying to find office chairs and carpeting. Listeners who help WUTC with these acqisitions could possibly meet the criteria for tax deductions.

If you or your company might be able to help, please call (423) 425-2377 and ask for Lawaunda January.
