Cedarville, OhioCDR Radio`s Ingathering 2004 fund drive in October became a conduit of support to American troops as the station sent out more than 12,000 patriotic window stickers in support of the U.S. military and military families.
CDR Radio (The PATH® 90.3 FM in Dayton/Springfield), the inspirational, non-commercial Christian radio network of Cedarville University, held a four-day Ingathering event Oct. 19-22 to raise money for the operating needs of the network. All listeners who made a donation or commitment or who called in to offer prayer requests and messages of thankfulness received a patriotic sticker.
"The response to this event was beyond what we imagined," said Mark Kordic, CDR Development Director. "We even had an Ohio military chaplain contact us who is passing the patriotic window stickers out to his unit in Iraq along with their families in Ohio to build morale by demonstrating how much Americans truly care for them."
Listeners contributed or made commitments of $786,000 toward the $830,000 annual operating needs of the nine-station network. The network encouraged listeners to submit their prayer requests at www.thepath.fm and to continue to pray for our nation and military.
The CDR Radio Network operates three primary, non-commercial FM stations and six FM translator facilities serving a potential audience of more than 3.8 million in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Program information may be obtained by calling 1-800-333-0601 or by visiting www.thepath.fm.
