KNLE, The Candle 88.1 FM is the only radio station in the Austin area that solely plays music from independent Christian artists and has been serving the community for over 25 years. In addition to the radio station, Sherland Priest, the KNLE owner and General Manager, serves his faith and his community in a variety of other ways including prayerful advocacy for the needs of friends, family and his music ministry. It was after one of 2016’s area rain storms that Sherland happened to share with a close friend, Mitch Elengold, that the roof on the KNLE facility leaked badly every time it rained.
Texas Fifth Wall Roofers roll out and install TPO membrane on the roof at KNLE, The Candle 88.1
As Blessings go, this casual comment moved Mitch to take action. Mitch contacted Texas Fifth Wall Roofing Systems, Inc. to see if there was an interest in helping. Indeed, Texas Fifth Wall’s vision is to find ways to help our community whenever possible. Although a bigger project than we are typically able to undertake for charity, Fifth Wall agreed to provide labor and materials to replace the roof on KNLE’s facility.
Once again, this casual comment motivated Mitch to take action: He made a few phone calls, sent a few emails, and paid a visit to a few friends. Soon, cash donations to support the effort rolled in from friends, family and associates.
Contributors that made it possible to replace the roof on KNLE’s facility include:
