Des Moines, IA, May 12, 2022 – Life 107.1 (KNWI/Des Moines) partnered with listeners and three local churches to host Single Moms’ Morning Out after a two-year pandemic hiatus. Gloria Dei Church, Prairie Ridge Church, and Adventure Life Church hosted 245 moms and 174 children. 525 volunteers helped keep the children entertained and treated the moms to food, hair styling, crafting, massages, fashion consulting, and shopping in the free Blessings Boutique. The Boutique was stocked with donations from Life 107.1 listeners.
Life 107.1 Listener Engagement Director Jen Green said “It was truly beautiful to be back together again with these hard-working moms, their children, and the volunteers that make Single Moms’ Morning Out our favorite event of the year!”
One mother wrote “I was blessed by the men and women inside and outside the building. Thankful to have had my car washed and vacuumed, for my hair cut, for the back massage… But mostly to an amazing woman who reached out to me when I was sitting alone and who searched me out later to inquire how I was doing. Bless you all for the prayers that have been given for all of us weary moms out here. Today was truly a blessing.”
