Food Drive - Starts Nov. 15th

DATE: 11/15/21 - 11/19/21

Our annual Food Drive starts on Nov. 15th and we need your help to bring in lots of food! Each class will be collecting a particular Thanksgiving food item. Send the food item into your child’s classroom during our Food Drive Week. All food items collected will be donated to the Des Moines Food Bank. If you’d prefer or in addition, you may send a financial gift or buy grocery SCRIP), which we will give to the food bank so they can hand them out for people to buy turkeys. Yes, your donations are tax deductible!
