Are you struggling to provide clothing for your children? 
Bring Love has a great assortment of gently used clothing in all sizes. They would be a great resource for those back to school wardrobe needs. The clothing is provided at no cost to you.  Contact Liz at 515-554-1363 (best to text) to schedule an appointment.  

Mentor Iowa is looking for mentors to be paired up with youth who are being referred in the Madison County area.  The mission of Mentor Iowa is to provide assistance to abused, neglected, and delinquent children who are under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court Services.  We do this by working in partnership with the children, their families and the community.  Trained volunteer mentors meet 6 hours a month with the child with whom they are matched and introduce positive new activities, new places, new ways of interacting and new study skills.  In addition, Mentor Iowa plans regular group activities where mentors and children can interact in fun, age-appropriate settings. 

If interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Marty Lester, Executive Director for Mentor Iowa at 515-277-9797 or marty@mentoriowa.org



Wondering how you can help? CRISP Welcomes Your Donations!

CRISP is now accepting monetary donations for the Paw Pantry. Donations may be sent to CRISP at 210 W. Green St., with Paw Pantry noted in the memo line. Paw Pantry has been able to purchase food at cost from a local grocery store and use the purchases to put together food boxes for curbside pickup for families in need.

CRISP is also accepting donations for utilities and rent assistance for its clients. These will be needed once the moratoriums on these have been lifted.
