Cycle To Recycle

Thanks to the efforts of Rocycle and the participation of our attendees, we were able to collect a substantial amount of old electronics for recycling. By keeping these devices out of landfills, we are taking a significant step toward reducing electronic waste and minimizing our environmental footprint. The event provided a wonderful opportunity for members of our community to come together, connect, and learn more about the importance of responsible electronic recycling. Hits 106’s live broadcast added an extra layer of excitement to the event, with entertaining music, engaging discussions, and fun giveaways throughout the day! Overall, our Kia for a Cause event was a testament to the power of collective action and community spirit. Together, we demonstrated our commitment to sustainability and made a tangible difference in protecting our planet.

It warms our hearts to express our deepest gratitude to each one of you for coming together and making Najir’s 6th birthday an unforgettable and truly special day.

We came together with Celebrate Birthdays, a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that every foster child and all children, regardless of personal or financial circumstances, has the opportunity to celebrate their birthday and receive a present.

Hits 106 set the stage with upbeat rhythms while Priceless Inflatables LLC inflated the fun. Painted Cheeks transformed giggles into masterpieces, and the Bay Area Renaissance Festival sprinkled a little extra fairy dust on our festivities with free tickets for doners.

We’d also like to thank Bubba’s 33 for providing pizza and a special gift for Najir, as we all as Bosco’s Italian To Go for donating gift certificates.

The outpouring of support and unbelievable donations received today was overwhelming. It could not have been a more beautiful moment, and Najir’s radiant smile captured the essence of the day.

We’re so thankful to our community and friends for helping make the day a success!

On Saturday, Dec 2nd we had the pleasure of hosting the Toys for Tots Kick-Off Event in collaboration with the incredible Hits 106 radio station.

The atmosphere was filled with festive cheer and the spirit of giving. Together, we kicked off the holiday season in the most heartwarming way possible – by making a difference in the lives of children in need.

🎶 Hits 106 brought the energy with fantastic music, creating a lively and joyous atmosphere! From our friends with the Pasco Young Marines to the Star Wars crew (Darth Vader of Springhill), and the Krew De Forte Firetruck team it was a day full of smiles and laughter. Families and friends came together to share in the spirit of generosity, bringing along new, unwrapped toys to contribute to the Toys for Tots drive.

It was not just an event; it was a celebration of community, kindness, and the true meaning of the holiday season.

We want to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who participated, donated, and helped make this event a tremendous success. Your generosity will surely make a lasting impact on the lives of children during the holidays.

Let’s cherish the memories we created together and look forward to more moments of giving, love, and community spirit in the future. Thank you, Hits 106, and thank you to our incredible Kia of Wesley Chapel community!

Rescue Adoption Event

On July 8th, Kia of Wesley Chapel held our annual Southern States Bully Rescue adoption event! As always, we had an amazing turnout and many adoption applications were put in for the sweet fur-babies! Our local pet adoption events help nonprofits such as Southern States Bully Rescue bring awareness to their cause and bring attention to their social media pages. This, in turn, helps these sweet pups get adopted instead of living their lives in rescue or worse.

Their mission statement is they can change the world one dog at a time, and it is showing every single day in all that they do. You can get more info about them at https://www.southernstatesbullyrescue.org/about.

Pet Fest

Kia of Wesley Chapel hosted Pet Fest with Hits 106, and it was a great success! The Humane society of Pasco County was very happy with the turn out – looks like 2 of the 8 pups on site were adopted out! We set up near the road, so they had great exposure to 54! All around a wonderful day. Thank you to anyone that donated pet supplies, much appreciated! Thank you to Luis for doing another great live radio interview!

On May 20th , Kia of Wesley Chapel partnered with Hits 106 out with once again for “Kia for a Cause”. This month’s Cause was Marjorie’s Hope and we were able to host a donation drive as well as an opportunity to donate for a chance to win an e-Bike!

Marjorie’s Hope is all about giving hope to children. This is accomplished through their Back-to-School and Clothes Donation program, as well as their amazing Cinderella Closet for students who need formal wear for proms or other dances. Students are able to select from a wide variety of Homecoming or Prom dresses, try them on and take one home to keep, completely free of charge. There is always an ongoing need for these items, especially as Marjorie’s Hope continues to grow to this side of Pasco county, so we invite you to donate to this amazing cause!

Dream Builders

Kia of Wesley Chapel so graciously donated to the Dream Builders Gala and Silent auction to benefit the kids in Haiti. This year’s event was more important than ever because Haiti is going thru a huge crisis with gangs and violence taking over the urban areas and making it nearly impossible for food and supplies to make it to the areas that need it most. Currently no one can travel there but Schools for Haiti is still able with feet already on the ground open a new school this year as well as continue to support and help the kids of Haiti thrive under unimaginable circumstances.

This video is a glimpse inside what Gil Ballie and his team at Schools for Haiti Has done and will continue to do.

Schools for Haiti

Schools for Haiti, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded by Bonnie and Gil Bailie from Tampa, Florida in 2006, opening the first school with 12 students. Your support has allowed us to provide a Christ-centered education to approximately 2,000 students in 10 schools and serve over 400,000 hot meals throughout the school year. We also support two orphanages and are preparing to launch our first trade school.

It is our hope that more people will become involved and support our schools as we continue to educate and feed the children of Haiti. We firmly believe that we are making a difference in the lives of students who will make a difference in the future of Haiti.

Kia of Wesley Chapel was honored to be able to donate backpacks and school supplies to Schools For Haiti.

“Schools for Haiti operates to help the children of Haiti. They now support approximately 2,000 children in ten schools and a kindergarten. Many of these children live in make-shift houses and come to school hungry each day. Their mission addresses their most vital needs and provides hope for a better future.”
