The First Shine.FM Summer Adventure Tour Successfully Engages Listeners
600 backpacks filled with school supplies donated by Shine.FM listeners were distributed to students in need by Shepherd Community Center. Shine.FM collected school supplies during the station’s first Summer Adventure Tour July 17-21.
“Through the generosity of Shine.FM and their listeners, students at Shepherd and in our surrounding community will receive the school supplies needed to help them learn and grow as the fall semester begins,” said Karalee White, Neighborhood Engagement and Development Officer at Shepherd Community Center. “Shepherd is grateful for the role this will play in helping build stronger families and a stronger community here on the near Eastside of Indianapolis.”
The Shine.FM crew kicked off each tour stop with an afternoon of family fun including a bounce house, yard games and a live broadcast of the Afternoon Adventure with Brian and Steph. Immediately following the broadcast, Micah Tyler performed a free concert indoors.
The week-long tour spanned three states and five different listening areas of the radio network.
• DeWitt, Mich. | 95.3
• Bourbonnais Ill. | 89.7
• Valparaiso, Ind. | 88.5
• Kokomo, Ind. | 99.7
• Franklin, Ind. | 88.3
“We traveled from Frankfort to Kokomo to see Micah Tyler present an amazing free concert,” shared Chris Myers, a listener of Shine.FM’s newly acquired 99.7 signal. “Thank you, Shine.FM 99.7 and Micah Tyler for sharing the love of Jesus.”
