a Difference. It's about helping, having heart and being committed to
continuously give back to our community. In 2010, 93.3 KIOA made a difference.
We worked to collect over 8,000 shoes, coats and mittens for Des Moines
area children with the 'Shoes That Fit' campaign. KIOA educated our listeners
and placed mentoring front and center with '30 Mentors in 30 Days.' KIOA's
'Hearts and Homes' fundraiser received over $150,000 for displaced women,
and we provided life-saving tips and early warning signs for breast cancer.
KIOA staff not only wrapped their arms around these events on-air, but
off the air, too. KIOA's philosophy provides more than just a voice for
a cause; it provides answers to questions and problems facing the community.
In 2010, KIOA committed over 36,000 minutes of on-air time and over 375
hours to organizations and charities to better serve our community. Whether
on the air or off the clock, 93.3 KIOA staffers are committed to making
a difference in central Iowa. KIOA's passion for our community is what
separates us from the rest. We are all extremely privileged and proud
to work for our listeners, for our community and for 93.3 KIOA."
