Announcing the Fourth Annual IAF School Supply Drive!!
It's back to school season again, and that means IAF has a yet another great opportunity for some community outreach. Over the next few weeks we will be collecting school supplies for donation to children, teachers and schools in need. We will be accepting donations at the weekly meet up (every Sunday at the weekly meet up) and at any other IAF event. The donation part of our drive is scheduled to close Sunday, August 16th.
Every donation is greatly appreciated! We are encouraging financial donations this year to help ensure our schools are getting the supplies they need most. Of course, we will still gladly accept supplies like backpacks, pencils, notebooks, etc. You can also find more detailed lists of supplies on any Des Moines Public School website.
Last year we calculated the average minimum cost of school supplies for an elementary school student to be around $85.00. This amount did not include the cost of student lunches, or registration and text book fees. Help us sponsor students this year with a donation of supplies or funds. Consider it an investment in the future of our society. !
