Upper Des Moines Opportunity Needs Your Help

By Staff | Nov 2, 2017

The Palo Alto Outreach of Upper Des Moines Opportunity is once again heading into their busy holiday season.

The Outreach will be providing Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes to their families. These are done with the help of the Emmetsburg Fareway Store. The Thanksgiving box includes a turkey and all the trimmings and the Christmas box a ham and other food items. The cost of the food is offset with donations from county businesses, churches, organizations and residents. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Without the help from the people of Palo Alto County many of the services to the at-risk families would not be possible.

Families are also signing up for the Adopt-A-Family At Christmas program. The needs and wishes of the children of the families will be listed in the newspaper in late November. Anyone wishing to adopt one of the families can call the Outreach Office at 852-3482 ext. 113. This service ensures that parents can provide their children with a Merry Christmas.

The Upper Des Moines Palo Alto Outreach Office wants to thank everyone for their support and invites them to stop in at the office at any time. The Palo Alto County Outreach gratefully accepts and appreciates your help, trust and faith in their efforts to serve those in need.
