Thank you so much to those who graciously donate to the residents at the Iowa Veterans Home. Your donations make a huge difference in the lives of 500-plus veterans and their spouses who call IVH home.
Soon we will be getting ready for Christmas for our residents. The Volunteer Advisory Committee is raising money for our Christmas Fund to purchase gifts for residents. Giving for Christmas will warm your heart and let each resident know that they were not forgotten.
Daily needs for residents include these items: word searches, personal care items, candy bars, individually wrapped snacks, soda, and forever stamps.
Many questions have come up about clothing donations. Only new clothing is accepted with our greatest need for men's large sized clothing XL and above. We do not accept used clothing because we do not have the staff to process it, the space to store it, and we need to prevent pests from coming in.
We request that you call ahead prior to donating material donations, 641-753-4406. Donation delivery address: Quartermaster, Iowa Veterans Home, 1301 Summit Street, Marshalltown, IA 50158-5485. Financial Donations should be sent to the same address, attention Volunteer Services.
Thank you again for your support!
Aimee Deimerly, Marshalltown
