Heart Connection Collection

14_Heart_Connection_PosterWest Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) is making a connection – a Heart Connection – the week of February 10-14. WDMCS staff and students participate in the Heart Connection, a collection of personal care items for those in need. Items to be collected include shampoo, soap or body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, toilet paper, laundry detergent, hand sanitizer, and Kleenex. The donated items will be compiled and then distributed throughout the WDMCS school buildings in partnership with the Booster Pak Program. Silver Cord students from Valley High School and Valley Southwoods Freshman High School participate by providing a decorated collection box and distributing posters to their assigned buildings.

The Heart Connection Collection is coordinated by WDMCS Community Education’s Service Learning programs. Read More
