Life 97.9 Listeners Help Provide Baby Items for Families In Need

During the month of January, Life 97.9 partnered with Women’s Care Center (formerly First Choice Clinic) to collect baby items for their Crib Club program in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Listeners were asked to purchase gift cards from Walmart, Target, or Amazon, and send them or drop them off at the Center. Women’s Care Center also had an Amazon Wish list where the listeners could purchase most-wanted items.

A total of $1160 worth of gift cards was collected. Additionally, $810.32 worth of Amazon Wish List items such as books, onesies, socks, and other baby items were donated. In summary, $1,970.32 in total support was raised! All the items from Life 97.9’s collection went to the Crib Club as items available for the families to buy with the coupons.

Angela Wambach, Executive Director at the Women’s Care Center said, “We greatly appreciate this opportunity for awareness of our mission and the items that will directly help the women and babies that we serve!”

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
