Christmas Shopping Ideas
If you are searching for a gift idea for the person who has everything, perhaps you might consider making a donation in his/her honor. As we wrap up our Childhood Cancer Awareness program, you might consider sending a gift to the Children’s Cancer Connection in Des Moines. The non-profit organization provides programs for education, recreation and support to families affected by childhood cancer. http://childrenscancerconnection.org/.
In addition, you may honor a loved one by sending a gift to Move the Food. The program, which is operated by the Des Moines Area Religious Council, partners with 13 food pantry sites in the Des Moines metro area. Those seeking assistance receive a three-day supply of food for themselves and their families once a month at no cost. www.dmarcunited.org/.
