Testimonials

SUCCESS Program – Edmunds Elementary

“I want to thank you both for your time and commitment to helping children in need stay warm this winter. Besides keeping them safe and warm it helps them arrive at school ready to learn. This year is especially important as the (other program) has long been another donor that we relied upon to meet our significant needs here for winter coats and we were informed last week they are no longer providing coats, just shoes, so your help is integral to us here! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I will promote the Iowa Wild game to staff and on social media. Thank you VERY much for your support.”

“We had a family that had a house fire and they lost almost everything. They had young twins and with the help from Winter Warmth Drive we were able to provide coats and snow pants for each child. We were also able to give our school janitor, who is a refugee from Sudan, and his five children winter coats, snow pants and boots. Thank you for what you do.”
