This Week's Program

If you were planning a program, please contact the presenter to inform them of our meeting suspension.

The Helping Hand

Helping hand continues to provide basic staple items for families in our community.

We can assume that the demand for items will increase due to the changes made in the service industry during this pandemic.

Please consider helping out by shopping for chili beans, cake mix, ketchup, mustard, ranch dressing, sugar, salt, applesauce, Hamburger Helper and toilet paper. 

You can drop your items at

  • Salem Connection, 222 W Salem Ave. during the daytime when a tote will be outside the front door, or
  • at The Helping Hand on the east side of the building which is having curbside delivery during the following hours: M-Sat 8:30-11:00
  • The Food Pantry at Helping Hand is Open to families during these days / times:
        Tuesday      12:30 - 2:30 p.m.

Ev's guest on March 20th Greater Des Moines Age-Friendly Initiative is committed to having Central Iowa become an officially
recognized Age-Friendly Region. I believe that our fellow Rotarians will be very interested in learning about
the Age-Friendly Community work and how building a more Livable community will be beneficial for all who
live, work and recreate in Indianola and throughout Greater Des Moines.
