Life 97.9 partners with the YWCA Cass Clay

KFNW/Fargo (Life 97.9) hosted Casting Crowns, Zach Williams, and Austin French at the Fargodome in Fargo on April 15. Listeners were asked to donate new women’s and children’s socks, underwear, and toiletries to benefit the YWCA Cass Clay. Listeners responded by donating hundreds of items to help women and children escaping violence and homelessness.

Laura Dronen, Volunteer and Donations Coordinator at YWCA Cass Clay said, “These donations from the Life 97.9 listeners will help serve the 32 women and 27 children who are currently staying in the YWCA Shelter today. These gifts have the power to change lives and we thank you for believing everyone deserves a life free of abuse and homelessness.”

Life 97.9 Listener Engagement Director, Carly Viland, said, “Often, women and their children come to the YWCA with nothing. It was hopeful to see how these contributions of practical things, such as socks, underwear, and toiletries, belongings which many take for granted every day, will be life altering when received by someone at the YWCA Shelter.

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.
