This month, KLRU has been re-airing the original broadcast of Sesame Street’s one-hour special “Growing Hope Against Hunger.” In this show, guest stars Brad and Kimberly Paisley meet Lily, the newest Muppet. Together, they reach out to viewers who may be hungry and those who may be in a position to help others. At the conclusion of the episode, viewers of all ages who may need additional food are directed to call 2-1-1, the call center for local health and human services.
“Growing Hope Against Hunger” will air four more times this month:
- Monday, August 20th at 1:00 pm
- Wednesday, August 22nd at 12 noon
- Friday, August 24th at 12 noon
- Tuesday, August 28th at 12:30 pm
