TIME SENSITIVE RESPOND OPPORTUNITIES
It's the time of year when parents typically 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 who simply cannot afford to provide those opportunities for their children. Our March 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! Give monetarily by writing "March Mission of the Month" on your check memo or simply give online.

Thank you, to all who have donated, served, or delivered for our Monday Night Community Meal over the past months. None of this would happen without all those who have taken the time to help! There are approximately 150 meals being served each Monday to those in our community who may not otherwise have a hot, home-cooked meal that night. Deliveries are being made to a number of apartment complexes primarily serving our older generations for a total of 100 meals. Interested in helping? Sign up here.

Trinity Supper Club Meals: First Wednesdays AND Fourth Tuesdays
A team of volunteers meets at the Christian Life Center to prepare meals and deliver them to Trinity Las Americas in downtown Des Moines, which goes to the community and after-school children. To make that happen, we need you! There are opportunities to bake cookies, prep meals, or deliver meals.
Central Iowa Shelter & Services Meal Join us as we serve a meal for our neighbors at Central Iowa Homeless Shelter in Des Moines on the 21st of each month.
