Heart Connection Collection

heart_connection_logoWest Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) is making a connection—a Heart Connection—the week of February 16-20, 2015. WDMCS staff and students are invited again this year to participate in the Heart Connection, a collection of personal care items for students in need.

Last year because of your generosity we collected over 7,000 items for our WDMCS school buildings and students.

It is now time to restock our shelves! The most needed items are regular sized shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, body wash, lotion, toothpaste, and chap stick. Please bring your items to school the week of February 16-20 and place in the Heart Connection box. Items will be collected and then distributed throughout the WDMCS school buildings in partnership with the Booster Pak Program. Thank you for your support for this very worthy cause!

The Heart Connection is coordinated by WDMCS Community Education’s Service Learning Program.
