UDMO offers thanks for support

To the Editor:

Upper Des Moines Opportunity would like to express our appreciation to all of those who were involved in this year’s Back to School Bash. The bash was held on Aug. 8 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the ACE building in Webster City. Our sincere thanks go out to the All Cultures Equal for providing the venue, to the agency providers who sponsored activities and prizes for the children, to the volunteers for their assistance, to the community and the businesses who donated school supplies or monetary donations.

UDMO will continue to receive monetary donations and school supplies which can either be mailed or dropped off at UDMO Hamilton County Outreach Office, 1440 E 2nd St. Webster City, IA 50595 or call Jamie at (515) 832-6451.

At a time when the impact of increased costs of daily living is felt by all, enabling families to acquire basic school supplies for their children’s education is especially important. From all of us at UDMO, thank you very much.

Working together is making a difference in Hamilton County.
