West Des Moines Community Schools – Personal Care Collection
West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) is making a difference the week of Feb. 20-23. WDMCS staff and students can participate in a personal care collection for those in need. Items most needed are regular-size shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, body wash, lotion, toothpaste, and lip balm. The donated items will be collected and distributed throughout the WDMCS school buildings in partnership with the Booster Pak Program.
Elementary students and Silver Cord students from Valley High School and Valley Southwoods Freshman High School participate by decorating a collection box, distributing posters, and counting and organizing donations at their building.
The personal care collection is coordinated by WDMCS Community Education’s Service Learning programs. For more information on Service Learning, please visit commed.wdmcs.org/programs/youth/service-learning.
