Life 97.9 Listeners Provide Over 2,000 Meals for Those in Need

FARGO, N.D. (May 21, 2020) – KFNW/Life 97.9 partnered with the New Life Center to help feed families in the Red River Valley who have been hit by the hardships of COVID-19. During Life 97.9’s spring fundraiser (April 21-24, 2020), for every $30/month gift that came in (Team 360), a generous donor gave the New Life Center the funds it needed to provide twenty meals. 2,080 local people will be fed thanks to the ministry incentive partnership with the New Life Center and Life 97.9 donors.

Tom O’Keefe, New Life Center Operations Director said, “Life 97.9 has been and continues to
be a tremendous partner for the New Life Center. Serving the homeless is a community effort
and Life 97.9 has been instrumental in our efforts to take homeless men from a state of merely
surviving to truly thriving. This spring alone, their Team 360 campaign raised enough money to
serve seven of our guests three meals a day for a year or feed a meal to the entire shelter for
nearly a month. This is a tremendous blessing to the New Life Center, and we are grateful for
their uplifting music, message, and actions.”

Life 97.9 Listener Engagement Director, Carly Viland, said, “It has been an honor to partner
with the New Life Center, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We see how God is
working through the Life 97.9 listeners to share the love of Christ to the local community in this
ministry effort.”
