Winter Warmth Drive
We are collecting new or gently used coats/jackets/hats, gloves and blankets.
Blankets are being added to the entire drive this year because of the huge benefit they played last year when RAK from WHS provided some.
The agencies/individuals we are supporting so far this year are as follows:
- Freedom For Youth – http://freedomforyouth.org/
- Serve Our Youth – http://serveouryouth.org/
- Hawthorn Hill – http://serveouryouth.org/
- Youth Emergency Services and Shelter – http://www.yess.org/
- Edmund Elementary – Des Moines (last year was the first time we used items from the drive for another school in our surround community. I love the idea of kids helping other kids in the Des Moines region)
- Rosebud Reservation – Paremlee South Dakota (an extremely low income area, average annual family income around $13,000, where children have very little to keep them warm in the winter)
The drive will run from Octover 10th through the 20th
