Review for Central Iowa Shelter & Services, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to know about Central Iowa Shelter & Services when I worked for the local festival and events group. At the conclusion of one of our Festivals, we donated several items (food and t-shirts) that remained from our volunteer program. Today, I'm a proud member of the volunteer PR team and also donate clothing and other items for the residents on a regular basis. I am constantly learning about the wonderful things CISS is doing to help those in need and take pride in knowing that I am a (very) small part of that. The staff and volunteers who contribute to CISS' successes are a bright spot in our community.

Make sure their new building was constructed soon!
