The Brighter Media Group believes serving others is a primary way to live out their faith. Because of rising costs, food insecurity is a crucial concern throughout the region they serve. BRIGHT-FM formed The Pantry Project, and nearly every week, their team set up at a local food pantry to receive non-perishable donations. Generous BRIGHT-FM listeners impacted over 30 community pantries serving one million Marylanders. Hope is found through prayer, so BRIGHT-FM ade hope louder through prayer nights at area churches and were honored to partner with Maryland’s National Day of Prayer event at the Fallen Heroes Memorial. BRIGHT-FM’s Classroom Collection stocked four low-income schools in the Baltimore area with needed supplies. BRIGHT-FM’s sponsorship of the River Valley Run, Maryland’s premier trail festival, allowed 250 underprivileged children to attend camp at River Valley Ranch. BRIGHT-FM partnered with Chick-fil-A for the Toys for Tots Stuff-the-Truck event and continued their 17-year partnership with Operation Christmas Child, bringing hope to children around the world at Christmas, resulting in 700,000 shoeboxes collected. Their “Walk With Jesus Easter Text Experience,” a resource serving BRIGHT-FM listeners in growing and sharing their faith, impacted nearly 29,000 people across six states, with many saying it renewed their faith. Through 48Live, BRIGHT-FM’s concert and event division, 67,577 attendees in seven states were able to be closer to the artists they love while partnering with other Christian radio stations. These events resulted in over 5,000 child sponsorships through organizations like Compassion International.
