West Des Moines Human Services provided holiday assistance to almost 500 low-income households during the 2019 holiday season through our Adopt-A-Family, Giftland and holiday food assistance programs.  We also partnered with the Church Opportunity Group to offer the COG Shopping Spree, and with the City of West Des Moines safety departments along with the West Des Moines Kiwanis to offer Santa At The Station. 

Thank you to EVERYONE in the community who contributed to our Holiday Assistance Programs! 
You helped us provide a brighter holiday season for those in need.
