Fall and the cool weather often means that our CityStops end up inside, but have no fear! They are just as awesome…
Last Friday I teamed up with Single Parent Night at Valley Community Center for a great opportunity to speak to kids about the importance of music decisions. Because the event was hosted inside, I was able to set up in a room and talk for 10 minutes to 3 separate age groups about the mission of our station and what it means to listen to good, wholesome music that relates to them and grows them. I was able to speak to 12 year-olds all the way down to 3 year-olds and the best part was, the littlest guys loved it too!
We are passionate about educating our community and our youth about music. If you have a group of kids you’d like to share our mission with, I’d love to stop buy and talk to them! Sign up today by filling out a CityStop form HERE!
Join with Pulse 101.7FM in making a difference this Fall as we partner with some great organizations to support kids in need! We’re teaming up with the Winter Warmth Drive for our Fill the Truck event on November 4/5. Students all over central Iowa are collecting gently used winter gear (coats, hats, boots, etc.) and redistributing them to students who need them, right in their own neighborhoods. If you aren’t already giving through a local school, we invite you to help us “fill the truck” at Chick-Fil-A on Mills Civic. Drop off an item (or three!), and pop inside to try the new 8-piece grilled nuggets, on the house when you make your donation.
It’s time to begin filling a shoebox to support children all over the world through Operation Christmas Child! You pack items for a boy or girl in a regular shoebox, and Samaritan’s Purse delivers it somewhere in the world to a child in need! National collection week is November 17-24. Want to know what to pack in your shoebox? For a list of local drop-off sites, click here.
Last, but not least, please remember Pulse 101.7FM in your year-end giving. We rely on your gifts to reach thousands of listeners each year with a message of truth through music. Your gifts help change lives (and are tax-deductible!). Thank you for your support as we launch into another year on the air in Des Moines and central Iowa!
