2015 Waukee Foundation Scholarships Food Drive

It is time again for the annual Waukee Foundation Scholarships Food Drive to benefit the Waukee Area Food Pantry. The drive will be held throughout the month of November with a pickup date of November 20.

Last year, the Waukee School Community School District donated more than 9,000 pounds of food and we’d like to increase that total this year.  As an added convenience, parents can donate directly to the food drive fund via RevTrak, or send in a check made out to the Waukee Area Christian Food Pantry.  Those funds will be donated to purchase food at a reduced rate for the food pantry.

Please contact Deb Bell or Rebecca Nehls if you have questions or concerns.  Let’s make this a great year for the Food Pantry!
