April 6, 2020 – Northwestern Media’s Life 107.1 (KNWI – Des Moines) partnered with the Friendship Center in Des Moines to help feed families in central Iowa who have been hit by the financial hardships of COVID-19.
All day Wednesday and Thursday morning (April 1st and 2nd) of Life 107.1’s spring fundraiser, for every $30/month gift that came in (Team 360), a generous donor gave to the Friendship Center the funds it needed to feed a family of four for a week.
By 9 a.m. on Thursday, the donor’s gift was “maxed out,” and 117 local families of four will be fed for a week thanks to the ministry incentive partnership with The Friendship Center and Life 107.1 donors.
Joe Quick, Executive Director of the Friendship Center says, “Wow! This is incredible. I hope Life 107.1 will benefit greatly from this generosity shown by your listeners. We at the Friendship Center cannot thank you and your listeners enough for how you continue to bless our ministry. I’d hug each of you if we were allowed.”
The Friendship Center exists to live by Faith, to be known by Love and to be a voice of Hope in the Des Moines community.
Life 107.1 exists to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media.
