About Winter Warmth Drive
The Winter Warmth Drive is a community effort ran by students within schools in the Des Moines Metro area. They collect coats, hats, gloves, blankets, scarves, snow boots, and pants. In 2014, nearly 9,000 items were collected and donated to children and families in need. New this year, Winter Warmth Drive has teamed up with Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts- the MICBS troops.
