RAK Winter Warmth Drive
RAK students are again promoting the Winter Warmth Drive this season. They are collecting new or gently used winter apparel now through November 7.
Students, parents and community members who wish to donate can do so by bringing hats, coats, gloves, mittens, snowpants, scarves and/or snowboots to the collection boxes in the Student Services office at the High School.
The Winter Warmth Drive involves each of the schools in the Waukee District, along with schools in other districts, such as Johnston and Valley. These donations will go to a variety of service ministries around the Des Moines area.
Junior Emily Brekke says that “there are actually a lot of students in Waukee that receive items from the Winter Warmth Drive, so by simply getting rid of our old stuff, we are able to help out families in our own schools!”
