The Texas Association has honored KCBI/Dallas, and its volunteers with the 2019 Bonner McLane Public Service Award. In 2018, KCBI, partnering with Buckner International, Habitat for Humanity and Mission Arlington, offered listeners the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with Emily’s and other North Texas families through its Summer of Service. In June, over 100 KCBI volunteers worked on Habitat builds in Collin County, Dallas, Fort Worth and Garland. On the Summer of Service Day in July, about 200 more boxed up 1,500 pairs of shoes to give to kids in need at the Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls Warehouse and prepared back-to-school backpacks, sorted clothing and more for those served by Mission Arlington. Nearly 320 KCBI volunteers total showed up with their great big hearts during Summer of Service 2018. Then, in August, listeners donated nearly 2,500 pairs of shoes for kids who need them most through Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls – just in time for back to school.
