LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Non-profit radio stations like Lufkin's Christian stations: 90.9 KSWP and 91.9 KAVX rely on donations to keep their station up and running.

The stations hold about two fundraisers per year. They always appreciate their listeners support, but the outcome of their recent spring fundraiser surprised everyone.

"We set the goal at 95 thousand and we reached that goal by Friday afternoon. We exceeded it and went on to raise 109,444 dollars," said Michelle Ross, Program Director.

The stations are so thankful for the outpouring of listener support and plan to continue their service of providing family friendly radio for East Texas.
