Lakeshore Public Media works to drive up joy

Lakeshore Public Media asks for the public’s participation as the northwest Indiana public broadcaster collects toys for local families. Lakeshore proudly announces this collaboration with Healthy Families Porter County, marking the beginning of a heartfelt initiative aimed at spreading joy this holiday season.

The toy collection drive commenced on Monday, November 27 and continue until December 7. Lakeshore Public Media urges individuals and businesses alike to participate in this noble cause.
