WGTS Listeners Reach Out to Compassion Kids
Story by Jerry Woods
WGTS 91.9 listeners recently answered the call to help children in poverty with the station’s recent “Days of Compassion” event. WGTS, a Christian radio station based on the campus of Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Md., teamed up with a team from ShareMedia representing Compassion to encourage listeners to sponsor Compassion kids from countries around the world. When it was all said and done, listeners had taken care of over 860 children.
"It is an honor to engage our listening family in projects which improve life for others - whether here in the Nation’s Capital or around the world. The future is now bright for these sponsored children - life will never be the same for them. That’s powerful,” says Kevin Krueger, WGTS general manager.
