11 Sep Hurricane Irma Response
A message from Brian Sanders, EVP, PAR
On behalf of our team here at Positive Alternative Radio, thank you for your interest in the #ENCW Project’s relief effort for Florida. The purpose of this document is to make it easy for your station to tie-in and do your own project in support of God’s Pit Crew, Convoy of Hope, and/or other response organizations with whom you wish to work.
- Audio – We’ve set up a Dropbox folder where we have some digital audio assets already, and more will be added. This is your place for interviews, soundbites and more.
- Graphics – PAR’s Creative Services Team has created digital graphics in standard formats to call your audience to prayer for Hurricane Irma victims, as well as to serve as a bridge to supporting God’s Pit Crew’s efforts. These graphics can be customized with your station’s/organization’s logo. Use them on your website, Facebook and other social media sites.
- Documents – We are including documents as we receive them from God’s Pit Crew, Convoy of Hope, and other #ENCW Project Partners. These can be used to plan your response project.

- Stories/show prep – Our teams are scouring the Internet to find remarkable stories about neighbors helping neighbors in Florida. We are in the process of updating a Google Drive document that will provide you with great content to talk about on-air, share on social media, or reference in other ways. As soon as we have prepared that information we will post the link here.
- Info about God’s Pit Crew – Our friends at Advocace´ have worked with their client, God’s Pit Crew to put together a toolkit for any station wanting to create a partnership. There is also a document with details on giving levels in the Documents folder in Dropbox. i58:10 Media has provided a messaging document that explains how to ask listeners for gifts, with language approved by Randy Johnson, GPC. This is included in the Graphics/Audio/Documents Dropbox folder (see above).
