“We know the need is great in central Iowa when it comes to on-going food insecurity issues,” says David Loving, WOI’s GM, “and these two great organizations deserve our support for their efforts to make a real difference.”
WOI and KCWI, Tegna’s ABC and CW affiliate in Des Moines, Iowa, and the Tegna Foundation, donated two area nonprofit organizations community grants totaling $7,000.
The grants are aimed at addressing needs made more urgent by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including that of food insecurity.
The grant recipients are:
Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC): The grant will support the DMARC Food Pantry Network, providing a three-day supply of healthy, fresh meals to approximately 647 individuals experiencing food insecurity in Greater Des Moines.
Des Moines Council of St. Vincent De Paul Society: The grant will support the organization’s two Healthy Food Pantries in Des Moines. These food banks target areas of the city that lack resources and provide fresh, healthy food items to the area, including surrounding counties.
“Local 5 and CW Iowa 23 are thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the local community that we work so hard every day to serve,” says David Loving, the stations’ president and GM.
“We know the need is great in central Iowa when it comes to on-going food insecurity issues, and these two great organizations deserve our support for their efforts to make a real difference.”
