The college radio station, KWSC-FM 91.9 The Cat, will hold a 24-hour livestream from noon Saturday, April 6, to noon Sunday, April 7, to raise funds for Haven House in Wayne.

The Wayne State College student-run radio station, KWSC-FM 91.9 The Cat, will host a 24-hour stream from noon Saturday, April 6, to noon Sunday, April 7.

The livestream will raise funds for Haven House of Wayne. Listeners can donate via KWSC-FM’s Twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/kwsc_stream or to Haven House at www.havenhousefsc.com/donate/.

Established in 1978, Haven House provides support and preventative services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, stalking, and harassment. Services include individual advocacy, shelter services, protection order assistance, crisis intervention, and legal advocacy. KWSC-FM hopes to exceed donations from last year’s event, which totaled $1,200.

The 24-hour stream will take place on the fourth floor of the Humanities Building at Wayne State. Coverage includes comments as participating students play video games, board games, and answer questions submitted via social media. This opportunity provides students learning opportunities as they engage in a different form of media production.

The livestream is also a project through Wayne State’s Service-Learning Program. It’s been a long-standing event for more than a decade.
