Christmas Blessings for King Elementary Students & Staff

Christmas Adoptions talk already????????

Each year those who participate in our different ministries are eligible for Christmas adoptions. Each participant asks for clothing, shoes, and one fun item for Christmas. Well, this year, King Elementary has asked the Friendship Center for help in providing new winter clothing for their children (246). The center would also like to purchase a new Smart 60 inch TV for the Staff Breakroom; a request was made known to us.

Winter Clothing needs are socks, hats, gloves, coats, hand warmers, blankets, towels & boots. All colors and sizes for children K-5th Grade.
Any questions, please call Joe at 515-244-1701 or email him at ministry@friendshipcenterdsm.org.

If you want to mail items to the center, please use our mailing address of Friendship Center, PO Box 41188, Des Moines, Iowa 50311. All donations are tax-deductible.

Summer Tutoring & Seeking Teaching Volunteers

The Friendship Center would like to help children in the MLK Neighborhood catch up with their academics by offering free tutoring services this year at the center. We are in need of teachers who would volunteer their time to help answer questions. Free lunch will be provided to all students and a food pantry will be open for all families. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Joe at ministry@friendshipcenterdsm.org today.
