WCQR exists to serve our listeners in ways that will inspire them to live passionately for Jesus Christ through every song and every spoken word.
WCQR and our listeners are consistently active in our community, raising awareness as well as raising support. In January 2017, WCQR launched The Pajama Project and our listeners overwhelmingly responded to this outreach, with over 3,000 pairs of new pajamas collected and distributed to eight ministries who serve children in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. In 2019, our listeners surpassed that total and over 4,500 pairs of pajamas were collected for kids in need.
WCQR listeners also wrote letters of encouragement or gratitude to our military. These letters were then shipped to A Million Thanks, a non-profit entity that sends letters to soldiers all over the world. Over 2,000 letters were collected for our men and women in the military.
In 2018, WCQR partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank for the 9thconsecutive year and raised over $157,000 on air, which provided 6,307 families (more than 25,000 individuals) in our region a full Thanksgiving meal.
WCQR gives back through Community Focus– an ongoing weekly segment that highlights a local ministry in our area. Each 501c3 ministry receives an on-air campaign that runs during the week as well as a 15-minute interview and space on our website. WCQR believes in focusing on the many local ministries in our area and the unity we have in serving Jesus Christ.
In addition, WCQR wants every child and member of the Tri-Cities region covered in prayer. The daily School Prayer Zone highlights a local school to remind listeners to pray for students and staff that day – this happens each weekday morning during the school year. Our Prayer Wall is an interactive feature on our website where listeners can submit their prayer requests as well as pray for others.
