Press Release: Tacopocalypse/YPC/CISS Thanksgiving Donations Time!
November 6, 2014, East Village, Des Moines, IA
Tacopocalypse is happy to announce that once again we are partnering up with the Greater Des Moines Young Professionals Connection on November 27th 2014 to provide Thanksgiving Day meals for the 300+ clients of Central Iowa Shelter and Services (1420 Mulberry Street, Des Moines, IA 50309).
Tacopocalypse will be using their culinary skills to prepare both lunch and dinner meals at the shelter. We are looking for both volunteers and food or monetary donations to assist with both meals. Last year’s response from the charitable taco loving public was so overwhelmingly amazing that we were able to prepare and serve dinner for over 300 people and donate close to 1000 pounds of food to the Food Bank Of Iowa, to assist other Iowa families in need.
How can you help? Here are a few ways:
You can register to volunteer as a server/helper at volunteerspot.com . Volunteer spots are limited, so act as soon as you can. A few volunteers will also be needed to help with loading/unloading both at the restaurant and shelter.
Food donations can be dropped off at our East Village location (407 E 5th St, Des Moines, IA 50309). We can also pick up any large donations (250 lbs or more) if necessary, to coordinate please call 515-779-8403 or email Tacopocalypsedm@gmail.com.
Monetary donations can be dropped off in cash or check (checks made out to Tacopocalypse) form at our East Village location, or mailed to:
407 East 5th St
Des Moines, IA 50309
You can also donate through Dwolla by searching Tacopocalypse. Make sure to put “Thanksgiving Donation” in the notes.
Volunteers sign ups and donations are open from now until Tuesday, November 25th 2014. Thank you in advance to all who give to ensure that others in need have the best holiday that they can. Have a great Thanksgiving!
