In-Kind Support

Food Donations

We have a regular schedule of faith groups who are responsible for most evening meals each month, which takes care of many of our food needs. Some items (breakfast cereal, coffee, sugar, margarine, snack foods, etc.) are much appreciated. If you would like to make a food donation or would like to volunteer to make a meal, please call 515-232-8075.
Please note, we cannot accept donations of food that are expired or beyond their Sell By, Best By, Use By, or any other utilization date.

Due to our limited amount of space, we are unable to accept most clothing donations. If you have clothing items to donate, please contact us (515-232-8075) before bringing in clothing donations to ensure we have a need for particular clothing items. We would also encourage you to contact one of our partner agencies that could also use these items.
