Gifts for Parents

Gifts for Parents provides free gifts for low income children to give to significant adults in their lives. Volunteers help the children choose and wrap presents from among donated items.

It will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017, at St Marks United Methodist Church.  

All children in the area between 4 and 14 years old are welcome to come and choose gifts.

We need your help with both gifts and volunteers.
Donations should be new or gently used items suitable as a gift for an adult.  We are particularly in need of men’s gifts.

Some ideas for gifts include:
Kitchen gadgets
Hawkeye items
But please, no clothing

Volunteer opportunities include:
Greeting families
Supervising the gift room
Escorting children to the gift room
Helping wrap gifts
Behind the scenes support work in the days before the event

An online sign up is available at, or you can download volunteer job descriptions at

If you have questions, please contact Judy McRoberts by email at or by phone at 515-346-0313.  We would love to have you join us!
