Make It Personal for the Urbandale Food Pantry!

2018 was the last year for Imagine Enough for Everyone. But wait! The Urbandale Food Pantry will take over the organizing of this event under a new name, Make It Personal! Visit the UFP website for more details about the 2019 Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 21!

I enjoyed encouragement and support from many during the past ten years, but especially from Eileen Boggess, executive director of the UFP; the Urbandale Public Library staff and facility; and all of the volunteers who signed up and showed up, including my husband Matt who always helped at this event instead of enjoying his day off. And a big thanks to the Urbandale/Des Moines metro community that always rocked the donations despite the January weather! Over the past 10 years we have collected well over 13,000 items for the Urbandale Food Pantry, despite rain, snow, ice, dangerous windchills, and otherwise miserable winter weather (and a few nice days!). Thanks again, and please support the “new old” event this January 21!

Thank you all! ~ Jane
