Power Morning 2020 Update

Feb 28, 2020

Well, we’ve never had a POWER MORNING quite like this. When we came in Thursday morning, all the phones in the building were down.

Some pledges came in online, but the phones are so important for making our goal. We paused at 7:30 and returned Friday morning with working phones.

To all who were patient and called in, those who pledged online, and those who made contributions toward the drive in the days leading up to POWER MORNING – THANK YOU!

As of now, pledges total $50,320. If you didn’t get a chance to give, you can still pledge your support online at www.KWBU.org – pledges that come in through the weekend will be counted toward our goal. Your gift will help us reach our $60,000 goal.
