Project: Impact is just one of the ways you can help Valley Community Center as we are "Doing good for the community...with the community." Each month, you have an opportunity to donate items that are then collected and distributed to local agencies - everything from food, diapers, blankets, coats, shoes, and more!
January: Underwear Drive
For many in the Des Moines community, underwear is a luxury item. We're working with Des Moines agencies to change this for families in need! Drop off new packages of underwear at the Valley Community Center all month long or at Valley Church during worship gatherings. Children's sizes 6-16 are particularly needed, but we have needs for children, young adults, and adults.
DROP OFF YOUR DONATIONS AT THE FOLLOWING TIMES AND LOCATIONS:
MONDAY - FRIDAY AT THE VALLEY COMMUNITY CENTER
SATURDAY FROM 5:30-7 PM AT VALLEY CHURCH (4343 FULLER RD.)
SUNDAY FROM 8 AM - 12:30 PM AT VALLEY CHURCH (4343 FULLER RD.)
