Saturday, July 10, volunteers in KCBI’s signature blue t-shirts served at three local ministries, saving babies at Embrace Grace Inc and at Mission Arlington and Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls, sending kids back to school in style with new shoes and a brand new backpack.
At Embrace Grace, Inc., volunteers assembled and prepped 1,000 Love Boxes for women facing unplanned pregnancies. “I’ve been listening to your station for a few years now,” said Mary Sword, a leader at an Embrace Grace group at The Avenue Church in nearby Waxahachie, Texas. “It was so amazing to serve with Rebecca & Burns (of Mornings with Rebecca & Burns) on Summer of Service Day at Embrace Grace. Your event is going to bring more attention to the Pro-Love movement. One thousand Love Boxes prepped and assembled translate to a potential 2,000 lives saved! THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
That was just the beginning. At Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex, volunteers prepped back to school backpacks, distributed food, sorted clothing and served as intake counselors. Volunteers serving at Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls prepped nearly 2,000 shoes to be placed on the feet of kids whose parents otherwise couldn’t afford them, just in time for back to school.
“KCBI listeners stepped up once again to serve this community well,” said KCBI General Manager and Vice President Matt Austin. “We are blessed to have so many in the DFW area willing to roll up their sleeves and do good work for the Kingdom of God. Their love for Jesus showed through brightly as they gave so much to so many in need.”
