Wheels For The World

Wheels For The World Donation Drive

The Light FM team is so full from what God has done during our Wheels For The World donation drive. Because of your efforts, the hearts of our listeners, and the goodness of our God, we ended the donation drive with a 100% FULL TRAILER!

These items will be transported to a prison in Clifton, TN (2 hours south west of Nashville) to be repaired, refurbished, and made like-new and distributed to a third-world country. Then, they will be paired with the Gospel and shared with hundreds of people in need of mobility and hope. Not only does this leave an impact on the recipient, it also touches those involved in the collection, the transportation, and those involved in the restoration of the items.

There are many stories of the impact these items have on the prisoners who refurbish these items and God works through this process to change their lives!

Thank you for coming along side of us and donating your items. We heard moving stories of what these wheelchairs meant to your loved ones, and are humbled by your donation.

Collection totals:

258 Wheelchairs

262 Crutches

259 Walkers

71 Transport Chairs

66 Canes

All for the Glory of God!
