A Message From West Des Moines Leadership Academy
The West Des Moines Leadership Academy selects a non-profit organization to support and raise money for each year. This year, our Class of 2020 has chosen to partner with Food Bank of Iowa as they continue to stock area pantries and organizations with resources during COVID-19. Our goal is to raise as much capitol as possible to support Food Bank’s top priority of ensuring that our most vulnerable neighbors have access to the nutrition and resources they need. The team at Food Bank are currently assembling Emergency Food Packs with approximately 20 pounds of shelf-stable items to make distribution to area partners easier, faster, and safer.
Unfortunately, the solution does not come free. The costs for additional food, labor, freight, supplies, sanitation, and miles on the road will be very significant. The solution to ending COVID-19 crisis will be a marathon, not a sprint. Your monetary support will provide Food Bank of Iowa with the endurance to get there. Each dollar contributed will provide up to 4 meals to food insecure Iowans. We hope you will consider the opportunity to contribute so they may continue providing essential nutrition and support to those in our communities that are in need. Please refer to the next page to explore contribution options.
Thank you for your support and generosity. We look forward to making an impact with your team!
