Spirit of Giving
is our annual Bible Drive for Love Packages.
Each September, several of our advertisers around Central Illinois
agree to collect used Christian literature for us. Many
listeners collect Bibles and books all year, waiting for a nearby
drop off location to be available. We’ll bring all the
donated materials to the station in early October. Our storage
building is already 60% full. We expect to be bursting at the
seams after getting the materials from our drop off locations.
Steve Schmitt from Love Packages will come in October to collect the
materials for delivery around the world. See our website for
a list of all the drop-off locations, and accepted materials.

We hope listeners will come along side these new programs like you
have our legacy programs. There’s more on our website about Spirit

launch, hopefully in October.
