August 3, 2020 – Northwestern Media’s Life 107.1 (KNWI – Des Moines) partnered with Agape Pregnancy Resource Center in Des Moines to help them launch a new Helping Hands pantry that will offer food and hygiene products to families in need.
On Thursday, July 30th, Life 107.1 held a contactless hygiene product drive in a parking lot near the station. Listeners were encouraged to drive up and drop their donations into bins. Life 107.1 thanked them with logo sunglasses in goody bags that each donor grabbed from a bucket held by a masked Life 107.1 staff member.
The drive was from 11 am to 1 pm—by 11:07 am listeners had already almost filled one whole mini-van! In all, listeners filled 4 mini-vans or SUVs with their donations—stocking the hygiene side of the pantry for a full year.
Jen Green, Life 107.1 Listener Engagement Director says, “Our listeners are always generous, and we knew they wanted to help right here in their own backyard during this time and hardship of COVID-19. But WOW! We weren’t expecting this response. God is so good.”
Life 107.1 exists to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media.
