89.5 KVNE Community Service Organization

St. Paul Children’s SERVICES

Since 2016, St. Paul Children’s Services and KVNE have worked together to provide more 1,682 new pair of shoes for children to start off their school year. If it weren’t for KVNE organizing dropoff locations and spreading the word to their listeners, none of this would have been possible. They have such a creative, fun team to work with and they show Christ’s love in everything they do! KVNE invests their time in building a stronger Christian community and no better place to start then with the children right here in East Texas. To see the childrens’ faces light up and the parents’ tears of gratitude in knowing their children will not have to start off the school year with old worn out shoes says it all!

Thank you so much for everything you do for our community!

Hiway 80 Rescue Mission

“Hiway 80 Rescue Mission is blessed by the encouragement and support we receive from KVNE and KGLY. Every year, The Mission is able to give out hundreds of care packages for the homeless that are collected through the promotion and support of KVNE. These care packages make an impact in the lives of The homeless in our community at Christmas and throughout the year. But the relationship between KVNE and Hiway 80 Rescue Mission goes beyond care packages for the homeless. Come by Gateway to Hope in Tyler or the mission in Longview any day, and you will hear the sound of uplifting, inspiring Christian music. Daily, the men and women served by Hiway 80 Rescue Mission are blessed by the positive and encouraging music and ministry shared by KVNE.”

– Rusty Fennell, Executive Director, Longview Office

Rusty Fennell, Highway 80 Rescue Mission


“As a small organization we are met with many needs without a lot of resources to share those needs with a broad audience. Encouragement Media Group is the megaphone our organization has prayed for to help fellow believers know the needs of children in foster care and how they can help.  Through our partnership we know that thousands of people are now praying for these children and engaging in ways to offer them hope.  Whether it’s through practical things like a diaper drive or helping recruit new foster families, we are so thankful for our friends and co-laborers at Encouragement Media Group!”

– Justin Hayes, Executive Director

living alternatives

“Living Alternatives is abundantly grateful and blessed by our partnership with KVNE and the Christian community.  KVNE sponsored diaper drives keeps our babies well stocked with dry bottoms and smiling faces. New mommies are encouraged with each diaper that lightens their load.   It’s a daunting but loving task to raise a baby alone. Every diaper is earned through a mentorship program in the Building Blocks program.”

– Bev Kline, Founder

Shepherd’s heart

Shepherd’s Heart Ministry feels blessed and honored to be connected with ministry-oriented organizations such as yourselves. Both stations, KVNE and Fuzion Radio, have opened their hearts to bless and serve us in so many ways. Partnering with you has opened multiple doors in which we are now serving. Thank you! You are such a blessing! I am positive these sentiments are shared by many ministries throughout beautiful East Texas. My sincere prayer is that the promise in Hebrews 6:10 ESV continues to rest upon you all. 

– Dr. James Dill, President
