On Thanksgiving and Christmas, we will serve thousands of meals to hungry individuals and families—both onsite at our Hope Cafe and delivered throughout the Des Moines area. This will take hundreds of volunteers! We also have a number of holiday outreach opportunities perfect for families, small groups, congregations, businesses and others looking to reach out to those in need.
This Thanksgiving, we have three volunteer opportunities including:
Online sign-up for Thanksgiving begins on October 1!
Each year at Christmas-time, we provide more than 200 gift bags for men, women and children in our emergency shelter and life recovery centers . . . and we couldn’t do it without you!
When you “adopt” a man, woman or child, we’ll provide a specific gift list and you’ll fill a Christmas bag with hygiene items, devotional books, toys and other items from the list. The cost estimate per bag is $35-$50
To sign up to provide one or more gift bags, give us a call at 515-265-7272 or email email@example.com.
We serve and deliver thousands of meals each holiday. Plus, we serve more than 450 meals every day at Hope Ministries. You can help provide holiday meals by donating much-needed food items.
We will collect Thanksgiving food donations on Wednesday, November 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at our Bethel Mission shelter (1310 6th Ave.). Food needs include:
If you have any questions on any of these holiday opportunities, please contact our volunteer coordinator at (515) 265-7272 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
