Hoosier broadcasters are doing remarkable work to keep the state informed and safe in the wake of COVID-19. This page is a resource for Radio and TV personnel to share ideas that stations are doing to help local communities, businesses, and individuals.
Below is a list of ideas that have been shared by IBA members.

We are starting a local gift card campaign to show our support for our locally owned businesses collecting gift cards or certificates in $25 increments and once we have all of them collected we will start giving them away one at a time to different individuals all the while promoting the fact that we continually need to support our locally owned independent businesses.
