The next time you visit your local YMCA of Greater Des Moines branch, consider giving back to help the residents of the YMCA Supportive Housing Campus (YSHC) during this holiday season.
Donations are being accepted at all nine Y branches for the downtown YSHC. The campus offers 140 individual efficiency residential units, providing a “place to call home” for less advantaged men and women.
Possible donated items being sought include gloves, hats, socks, scarves, toiletries, shampoos, dish soap, towels, toilet bowl brushes, food, coats, toilet paper, boots, shoes, pens, writing tablets, pots and pans, cooking utensils, bowls, plates, dishes, and t-shirts.
Donations can be made in the bins located in each Y branch lobby by November 30.
