“Tornadoes ripped through a lot of our listening area last Thursday, March 14. Hardest hit was Indian Lake, just outside of where our station headquarters is located. We have been doing relief efforts since Friday morning and organizing community volunteers with people who are in need.”

“As of today (Monday) we are now back in the studio after volunteering all weekend. Samaritan’s purse is in the area and requesting volunteers to help with cleanup.  The place looks like a war zone (pictured).  The outpouring of the community was amazing and now donated supplies have been moved to several area churches for further distribution.”
