KGTS-FM, Positive Life Radio 91.3, is seeking community support for its annual Rice for Cambodia Campaign from Wednesday to Friday.
The goal is to raise $160,000 to purchase and distribute 300 tons of rice to families living in Cambodian villages, according to the station.
The radio station is partnering with Musicianaries International and TransformAsia, a nonprofit group.
Musicianaries International was founded by recording artist Bobby Michaels, who died March 31 shortly after suffering a heart attack while on a trip to Cambodia.
His wife, Lee, and several other Musicianaries International members will join the radio staff for this year's fundraiser, the station said.
During a July trip, 28 villages were visited and 330 tons of rice was distributed.
