Take the “Jenny’s Change Challenge”
Like most of us, you may be on a budget, but still want to support the Ministry of WNKJ as much as possible. Here’s a fun and easy idea: it’s “Jenny’s Change Challenge”. You simply get an empty jar and start collecting your pocket change into the jar. At the end of each month, or when the jar is full, simply donate the contents to WNKJ. If you are already donating a monthly plegdge to WNKJ, this is a great way to be able to give beyond your pledge. If you were unable to make a monthly pledge at our last Care-a-thon, this is a great and easy way to contribute what you can. Our address is 1100 E. 18th Street and our mailing address is P.O. Box 1029, Hopkinsville, KY 42241-1029.
Also, this is an easy and fun way to teach your children to give to the Ministry. They can have their own jar to donate, or simply help fill your jar. Again, this is a great way to teach your children to give.
Thank you so much for listening and supporting WNKJ/WNLJ Christian Radio. For more information or questions, please contact us at 270-886-9655 or toll free at 1-877-885-9655.
Remember, the challenge is on! Together, we can change lives…one dime at a time…
