Help WIHS with Projects
WIHS would like to let you know about some special projects we want or need to accomplish. Prayerfully consider helping WIHS financially. Perhaps God has blessed your life in such a way that you can underwrite the cost of an entire project. That would be wonderful! Or maybe you'd like to assist, as God enables you, by contributing toward a particular project that will help us on our way. Either way, when you send your designated gift, be sure to indicate which project you're supporting.
How to Donate – You may donate to any of these projects by...
1) Mailing a check to WIHS at the address on the Contact Us page, or
2) Using a credit/debit card on the secure WIHS donation page.
Either way, please be sure to designate which project you are giving towards on the memo line of your check or in the notes section of the donation page.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support! Check back to see how the projects are progressing!

Antenna Project – The first antenna WIHS had was put in service when the station started broadcast operations in 1969. It was located atop a telephone pole on Round Hill Road in Middletown. In 1989, the second antenna was installed on a 65-foot tower located at the highest point on Round Hill. The move to a new location greatly improved the WIHS coverage area. That antenna had served the station ever since. The 27-year old antenna was nearing the end of its expected lifespan. We are so thankful for a friend of WIHS who has graciously donated a $10,000 gift which will pay for the new antenna. We praise God for two other major benefactors contributed $7,902 and $6,100 to get us well on the way towards our goal! Through the financial help of several other WIHS listeners who have given to this project, God has provided all of the money needed to pay for the materials and labor to complete the project! The new antenna was installed in September of 2017, went into service immediately and will help keep WIHS on the air for decades to come!
New Event Displays – WIHS is often "out and about" at churches and Christian events and would like to purchase two different sized event displays to use at larger and smaller venues.
Lobby Water Leak Repairs – Water has leaked into the WIHS lobby in two different locations causing damage to the paint, sheetrock and woodwork. Some repairs have been done to stop further damage from happening. But more time and work will be needed to ensure those leaks have been sufficiently corrected, and to make repairs in other areas of concern.
WIHS Deck Repairs Completed!
Over many years of being in New England weather, the deck off the south side of WIHS had fallen into disrepair and become unsafe. Last fall, WIHS Property Manager, Ray Bennett and members of his family went to work removing damaged planks from the deck and replacing them with brand new pressure treated wood. Likewise, railing caps were replaced with pressure treated wood. Changes were also made to the staircase so that it now sits securely on the concrete pad beneath it. In the late Spring, Ray applied a fresh coat of stain to the entire structure. Look at the pictures of the deck to see the completed work and impressive transformation!
We are most thankful that the project was underwritten through a gift from a listener on Long Island!
We praise God for members of the Bennett family that provided the labor for the repairs at no cost to WIHS!
