Every Wednesday from 4 to 6 pm, the public is free to come through our Clothing Closet and pick up as many items as needed. We just received about 50 snow boots for children and get furniture and other household items from time to time. All are welcome to attend as much as you want.

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.
