On Deck - Wednesday, February 16, 2022
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Wednesday, February 16. Our top story is about the upcoming resettlement of some Afghan refugees in Kewanee, an Illinois town about 50 miles from Peoria. You'll also hear about Peoria harm reduction nonprofit JOLT Foundation’s recent move across town. WCBU’s Hannah Alani interviews JOLT Director Chris Schaffner about the group’s move into a larger building closer to the geographic center of Peoria. Schaffner describes the growing importance of JOLT’s services at a time when opiate-related overdose deaths are skyrocketing. On Deck is produced by WCBU student intern Holden Kellogg.
