The Voices of IRIS Reach a Milestone in 2012!

4108 hours of reading

Did you know that Iowa ranks #3 among all states in the amount of time given to volunteering? In 2012, the volunteer Voices of IRIS lived up to that rank by reading 4,108 hours of print material for our listeners - going over the 4,000 hour mark for the first time! At a value of $17.22 per hour, that's worth $70,739 - but is priceless to us! Congratulations and THANK YOU to all our volunteers!

Would You Like to Become an IRIS Volunteer?

IRIS has reading locations in Fort Dodge, Des Moines, Sioux City, Mason City, Cedar Falls, Iowa City, Ames and soon - in Dubuque. If you would like to add your voice to our reading contingent, please call our office at 515-243-6833. Publications are read at varying times in each part of the state. We will connect you with the volunteer coordinator in your area. If you are not interested in reading on the air, please give us a call anyway. We are always looking for talented folks to help with our radio repair and delivery, newsletter preparation and other projects.
