The online and on-air digital station Contemporary Christian NGEN RADIO/HOUSTON, owned and operated by KSBJ EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION, recently helped students from KOR EDUCATION HIGH SCHOOL in COLLEGE STATION, TX, meet their fundraising goal for relief efforts in JAPAN and JOPLIN, MO.
Eight freshmen from a KOR leadership class focused their end-of-the-year community service project on the needs in JAPAN. The students wanted to plan a benefit concert to raise funds for JAPAN and reached out to NGEN for help in planning such an event. NGEN mentored the students on scheduling and running the event and promoted it on-air and online.
"We saw this as a great opportunity to help the students achieve their goal. NGEN radio works everyday to power a world of good. We were proud to be a part of such a great cause and to meet such dedicated students," said NGEN Promotions Manager DREW WILSON.
Over 100 people attended the concert which featured five local artists. The students raised $1,250 to help complete the $5,000 goal for JAPAN relief. In addition, the students also raised over $2,000 for JOPLIN relief efforts.
