-  Provide free educational workshops for ALL local children of divorcing parents

How LAW can support these missions:

  • bring a $10 gift card to our September 6 dinner meeting. the gift cards will be paired with cupcakes at an event in October
  • Bring office/school supplies to the dinner meeting. The children will use them in workshops
  • Get involved with the Birthday Party themed fundraiser at Confluence Brewery on october 11
  • Help with the fundraising appeal at Thanksgiviing
  • Take a 2 hour training and help with the Saturday morning or after school workshops
  • Host a one hour "Meet Kids First" informational coffee to let others know about their work
  • Sponsor workbook printing or children's snacks for the workshops
  • Sponsor children's toys/games
  • Volunteer to help when Kids First moves to a different location

You can see that there are many opportunities to participate at whatever level fits your lifestyle. Sure hope you will be part of the action!

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

LAW helped RMH in three ways: we raised money to purchase a bench for the therapeutic garden; we cooked meals on site for families staying at the house and for the Family Room at Mercy Hospital; and we purchased items  from the "wish List" such as gift cards, personal care items, cleaning supplies and paper products. 

Preparing and serving dinner at the Ronald McDonald House is a wonderful, fun, and rewarding experience. In November, a crew of 5 LAW members prepared and served a yummy Italian dinner for several families who were staying at the house.

 The bench is in place at the Ronald McDonald House! A plaque will be placed noting LAW of Polk County, Inc. 2018.
