96.3 WayFM and Horizon Christian School surprised Middle-School Drama Teacher Ms. Sandy Shaner with a car, over $3,000 in listener-raised donations and other gifts!
After a scheduled fire-drill, Elementary & Middle-School Principal Judi Smith announced that a special surprise was about to happen and that the school had partnered with 96.3 WayFM to gift a teacher with a car and donations. 96.3 WayFM Promotions Director, Dustin Donnor then asked Ms. Shaner to please come forward to accept a 2006 Toyota Camry and a check. At this point, all in attendance were in tears and cheering for Ms. Shaner.
Donner added, “when we became aware of Ms. Shaner’s need for a reliable vehicle to get to her multiple jobs, provide for her son as a single-mom and visit her sister dying of cancer who is not expected to make it to Christmas, we were inspired to partner with Horizon and get her story out to our listeners, who we knew would be eager to join us in creating this surprise for her. The response from our audience was humbling as listeners from 20 states donated to the project.”
In-between tears of joy, Ms. Shaner praised God, thanked everyone for their love and support and said this was the second-happiest moment of her life, following closely behind the late-in-life miracle birth of her son.
Donations for Ms. Shaner will continue to be accepted by texting MIRACLE to 91979 or visiting https://wayfm.givingfuel.com/christmas-miracle-2021.
