CRISWELL COLLEGE-FBC Contemporary Christian KCBI (90.9)/DALLAS partnered with BUCKNER INTERNATIONAL in AUGUST for a SHOE’s FOR ORPHAN SOULS campaign, providing shoes to unprivileged and vulnerable children in the DALLAS/FORT WORTH Metroplex.
KCBI encouraged listeners to to give new athletic shoes at various locations all over the METROPLEX, and overall collected over 2,000 shoes. During the final opportunity to drop off shoes during a TEXAS RANGERS game, KCBI listeners gave over 150 pairs of shoes, and shoe bins overflowed with donations!
KCBI’s REBECCA CARRELL, of MORNINGS WITH JEFF AND REBECCA, was on hand to greet listeners as they walked into the ballpark. And the comments listeners made to her were powerful, like this one from ALVARRO & his family, "I just hope that the boy who gets these shoes is able to walk comfortably. I’m praying that he may find hope in our LORD JESUS."
Both 90.9 KCBI and BUCKNER INTERNATIONAL have a mission focused on providing hope for the world around them. It is because of this incredible outreach that over 2000+ children will be blessed with adequate footwear as they begin the school-year.
