How to Get Involved
The work we do is made possible by the support of our volunteers. We have a variety of events throughout the drive that are perfect opportunities for people of all ages to get involved. From sorting through donations to supporting our Fill the Truck event — there’s no shortage of ways to share the warmth. Check out how you can get involved:
Donate Winter Items
September 30th – October 10th 2019
Donating your gently used or new winter items is the best way to get involved in the Winter Warmth Drive. Check out our list of participating schools and community partners to see where you can drop off your donations and help wrap a member of our community in warmth this season. If you’re looking for a quick way to make your donation before or after the drive, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will be accepting donations at their Urbandale office during regular business hours throughout the winter.
Fill the Truck
October 4th & October 10th 2019
Volunteering at our Fill the Truck event is a fun way for members of the community to get involved. Sign up for a shift to accept donations at one of our events and manage the donation piles throughout the night. For more information about the Fill the Truck or any of our other key events throughout the drive, visit our events page.
October 12th 2019
After donations have been collected, they need to be sorted and boxed for distribution to schools and community organizations. This is a great volunteer opportunity for those looking to get involved in the drive.
Support Our Cause
Can’t make it to one of our volunteer events? Consider supporting our efforts to ensure none of our neighbors go without the necessities to keep them warm this winter. Your gift helps us provide coats, boots, scarves and hats to those who might otherwise go without it. All monetary donations go toward our community schools and partners to cover the cost of running the drive each year. Large or small, all donations are greatly appreciated.
