94.7 QDR cares and believes in the North Carolina tradition of neighbors helping neighbors. Whether it’s helping to rebuild after a storm, donating to a local charity, or a simple act of kindness to show someone you care – we like to call this Q’ing it Forward. No matter how big or small the gesture, take the time to show you care.
We’d love to hear about it too! Let us know on social media by tagging us and using #QitForward.
