Hope Ministries’ Free Thanksgiving Meals
November 25 @ 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Hope Ministries wants to bless you this Thanksgiving! On Thursday, November 25, Hope Ministries will be delivering Thanksgiving Meals to families and individuals in need around the Des Moines area. Meal delivery sign-up and volunteer registration are both now open on our website at www.hopeiowa.org.
To make Thanksgiving meal deliveries possible, we are in need of on-site meal assembly volunteers and driver delivery teams to deliver meals in and around the Des Moines Metro. We do ask that all on-site volunteers are above age 13 and recommend driver delivery teams for groups with younger children.
Volunteer opportunities are currently open. To register visit our website at https://www.hopeiowa.org/get-involved/holiday-volunteer-opportunities/
Thanksgiving meal reservations will open on Monday, November 1. Meal reservations may be made online at www.hopeiowa.org or by calling 515-265-4277 Monday through Friday from 8:30AM – 4:30PM. Meals must be reserved by Friday, November 17 at 4:30PM.
