Upper Des Moines 10th Annual Toy Drive

The 10th Annual Toy Drive was held Thursday in Storm Lake at Bomgaars, where many area businesses contributed by shopping for gifts for children this holiday season. Outreach Specialist at Upper Des Moines, Maggie Reyes, representing Buena Vista County, expressed her gratitude on another successful year.

Reyes said that many of the families that applied for the Christmas program were asking for winter clothing necessities, mainly for themselves, but Reyes was pushing for people to buy toys for the kids.

The theme this year for Upper Des Moines is “Adopt A Family for Christmas.” Contact the BV County Outreach in Storm Lake to learn more about how you can help at (712)-732-1757 or visit www.udmo.com.
