  • April Mission of the Month

    Summer Fun Scholarships for IMPACT

    It’s the time of year when parents begin to plan and schedule summer activities for their children. Soccer, baseball, softball, and swimming lessons are all wonderful opportunities for children to learn and to grow. There are families that simply cannot afford to provide those opportunities for their children. Our April Mission of the Month will be to give scholarships to cover these fees. The money will be disbursed by IMPACT Ankeny so that when families come in to utilize their services, these funds will be made available. Let’s help kids have a great summer! Find a Mission of the Month offering envelope at our Welcome Centers or simply indicate this on your check memo line.
