Special Outings
Throughout the year, West Des Moines civic groups sponsor special outings for a limited number of children ages 8-14 to local events and exhibits.  In the past, the West Des Moines Kiwanis have taken children to a Drake Football Game, to Iowa Cubs Games, to the Blank Park Zoo and to special exhibits at the Science Center. We appreciate the support of the community!  Please call 273-0633 if you would like to sponsor an outing for low-income children in our community.
