Northwestern Media’s KNWI/Des Moines (Life 107.1) partnered with two local churches for the fourth year of Single Mom’s Morning Out on Saturday, May 6th. The special weekend to bless single moms is held annually the Saturday of the weekend before Mother’s Day. Prairie Ridge Church in Ankeny and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Des Moines hosted 200 moms. They were pampered with breakfast and lunch, massages, facials, jewelry making, a car wash and detail, all while their children were cared for and entertained.
