Back-To-School Supply Drive


Please join West Des Moines Human Services as we help local low-income children get off to a good start this upcoming school year by providing some of the necessary supplies they need.


You can make a difference right here in your own community by donating school supplies such as notebooks, paper, folders, pens, pencils, markers, crayons, glue, scissors, rulers, calculators and more!  We are also in need of new or gently used school clothing and shoes for children.  Monetary contributions are also an option, and are always appreciated. Donate now
