KAXL/Bakersfield (Life 88.3) PD Matt Pelishek tells HisAir.Net the Erskine fire in California has burned more than 200 homes, and Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for the county. 88.3 Life FM is the only Christian station that reaches that area and wanted to respond to help in any way that the community needed. On Thursday, June 30th, working with a list provided by the churches and emergency response for that area, they invited listeners to bring out the needed items. The community came out with an overwhelming response. Listeners brought in thousands of items which the radio station loaded and brought to 1st Baptist of Lake Isabella, which has become a distribution center for the Red Cross. God showed up in a big way through the efforts of a community working together to provide for those in need.
