Fill the Truck

October 14th, 2021

We are partnering with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK and the two West Des Moines Chick-fil-A locations (4502 University Ave and 6555 Mills Civic Pkwy)for this year’s Fill the Truck event. Bring new or gently used winter wear items to these locations in between 7am-7pm on October 14th to receive a free Chick-fil-A menu item. Look for the moving truck in the parking lot to drop off your items!

Contactless Donation Drive

September 1st – October 14th

If you are unable to make it to the Fill the Truck event or prefer a contactless donation option, we will be collecting winter wear gear at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Des Moines. We encourage donations of new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves, snow pants, boots and blankets. The donation drive will be curbside pickup during office hours.


2601 104th Street, Suite 400, Urbandale, IA 50322

Monday – Friday: 8am-5pm & Saturday: 8am-2pm


Virtual Donation Drive

Fall & Winter 2021

We are accepting and appreciate monetary donations for the drive. We understand during these times it may be more difficult to drop off physical donations. If you would like to donate you can do so on our website and we will purchase winter wear to fulfill the current need. Schools and organizations place “orders” with Winter Warmth Drive based on the need that they foresee for the kids in the upcoming winter. With monetary donations, we can fill that need even more directly by purchasing the items needed in the correct sizes. 

We still have our Amazon Wish List that includes a variety of winter wear items in multiple sizes. You can view the list here. Once you complete your purchase, it will be automatically shipped to our drop off location, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. We will then distribute the winter wear to the community – only takes a couple clicks to donate! 


Sorting Day

October 16th, 2021

Winter Warmth Drive is looking for volunteers to help us sort, count, and box winter clothing items for metro kids in need. This is a one-day opportunity with a potential of 6 hours of service that counts for silver chord hours. You can sign up for one 3 hour shift or both 3-hour shifts. If you would like to help sort, please visit our Volunteer page
