[Guelph, ON – November 13, 2020]

Skyline Group of Companies has launched a new campaign on the Fergus, ON radio network The Grand 101.1 FM, benefiting non-profit and community organizations.

Each month, starting November 2020 through to October 2021, Skyline is donating free radio advertising space on The Grand 101.1 FM to two special non-profit organizations for the entire month.

Additionally, the two charities will be featured on a new half-hour interview show introduced by Skyline, called InSight (Tuesdays at 7:30 PM ET), which will occur once a month.

“We saw a great opportunity to help community organizations in the Guelph-Fergus area to get more awareness and exposure,” said R. Jason Ashdown, Co-Founder & Chief Sustainability Officer at Skyline Group of Companies.

“This is about giving these organizations a platform to tell the community who they are, what their needs are, and how everyone can get involved. We also hope we’re inspiring other businesses to launch similar initiatives to benefit the greater community.”

“The Grand 101.1 FM is truly proud to be hosting this exciting new campaign introduced by Skyline,” said Lorie Black, at The Grand 101.1 FM.

“Our station is a non-profit organization itself, and a fervent supporter of community initiatives. We have seen first-hand how radio can be a powerful platform for charitable organizations to gain exposure and support. We’re looking forward to working with Skyline over the next year to bring more awareness to dozens of local organizations who need community support.”

The campaign began in November 2020, and the first two chosen charities were the Children’s Foundation of Guelph & Wellington and Lakeside HOPE House. Skyline staff members based in the Guelph, ON area are volunteering at both of these organizations (following COVID-19 safety and distancing protocol) leading up to the 2020 holiday season.

The Children’s Foundation and Lakeside HOPE House will be featured on the very first InSight interview show on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, at 7:30 PM ET. Tuesday, December 1 is also Giving Tuesday, an internationally-recognized day of giving, after the commercial and commerce-driven days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Grand 101.1 FM is available to stream online at
