Des Moines Area Religious CouncilFood Pantry Network and More!
DMARC is excited to announce that loyal contributor Doug Woods has doubled his annual “Challenge Hunger” match from $10,000 to $20,000!
From March 1 through April 30, 2018, donations to DMARC will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $20,000 given. Your $10 becomes $20, $50 equals $100, and so on. During this year’s Challenge, your $10 gift will help DMARC provide 35 meals.
DMARC Needs Your Help Sorting Food!
On Saturday, May 12 the National Association of Letter Carriers will be holding their 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Once again, DMARC will be the recipient of tens of thousands of food items donated from the drive. That’s where DMARC needs your help! They need hundreds of volunteers to help date-check, seal-check and sort the donated items.
Click on the stamp above to volunteer for a two hour shift May 12 -18.
It takes many hands for DMARC to be successful. From office help to volunteering in our food warehouse, we are so appreciative of any time you or your organization can lend.
Volunteer Programs Include:
- DMARC Food Pantry Warehouse
- DMARC Mobile Food Pantry
- Sack Saturdays at local grocery stores
- Meals from the Market
- Iowa Cub Sunday Home Games
