We serve meals at the Men's Homeless Shelter two times every month.
The Community Manna Meal is held at First United Methodist Church with area churches preparing and serving a meal for those in need of food. The evening consists of a short devotional, meal, and Bingo where those attending receive items not available to purchase with food stamps. This happens the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month at 5:00 p.m.
Every December, we partner with Community Christian School and other local churches to do a MobilePack for Feed My Starving Children. Through FMSC, you can engage in an impactful meal-packing experience. A MobilePack gives you the chance to instill compassion in your community and improve the lives of malnourished children.
Over 300 kids, along with over 500 other family members, attend this great event every year. This event is full of inflatables, party games, snacks, prizes, and so much more! This is one FUN event!
Every October, we offer a free oil change for single moms and widows. Laughlin Auto Repair along with Tom Donney Motors provide the space and the lifts, and we supply the manpower. This is a great opportunity to help our community and to get your hands dirty! Call the church at 515-955-6222 or email us if you are interested in helping.
Every December, we partner with Upper Des Moines Opportunity to bring Christmas gifts to families who otherwise would not have any gifts to open. You simply take a name off of the tree and buy some gifts for some deserving families! Because of your generosity, we are able to buy gifts for around 100 people each year!
