In early 2013, our very own April Dawn and her two sons went on a missions trip to Haiti with local missions ministry Children's Lifeline. Haiti was struck with a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake in 2010 and Children's LIfeline has been working to provide basic relief there ever since. When April returned, she shared during her Saturday morning show some of the sights and sounds from the Haiti trip with WSKV listeners. Click on the files below to hear April as she shares her inspirational experiences and the many ways the trip changed her life.
April wasn't finished blessing Haiti. Children's Lifeline, working with Kids Against Hunger, decided to do a Food Pack-A-Thon and fundraising event to raise $25,000 that will provide 100,000 meals for children in Haiti. April was not only on board, she pulled together a team here at WSKV to help raise money by selling tee shirts and enlisted volunteers to help pack and prepare the food boxes for transport.
The fundraiser was a great success raising $25,300. This Saturday, November 9th, more than 75 volunteers from throughout the community will come together at the Powell County High School to assemble the food packages. If you would like to volunteer your time to help, contact Dwaine Meadows at 606-422-9395 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are on Facebook, you can add yourself as "going" to the event by clicking HERE.
WSKV would like to thank April Dawn and Children's Lifeline for this amazing opportunity to work together with others in the community for such a worthy cause. We firmly believe that our community sowing good seed into the lives of the people of Haiti will come full-circle to bless our people here at home.
