BackPack Program - Food Bank of Iowa

We are committed to helping the youth in our community. We support them by giving a monthly financial donation to the Food Bank of Iowa. They provide free sacks of food for students to eat over the weekend.  The elementary school helps in the distribution process and the church provides pick-up and the delivery of the needed bagged meals throughout the school year.

The Vine

The Vine hosts FREE programs for Preschool thru High School kids! We are community supported and funded. We accept donations and we always need volunteers! Grade 6 and up can help with our Monday program.
