From IDW; Mapleton Update


Thank you to those who have given generously to the relief efforts in Mapleton.  Others are wondering what you can do. You can help!  I have been in nearly daily contact with the leaders at St. Matthew Lutheran Church.  You may have read in Sunday’s Des Moines Register that Mapleton did not want donations.  That is true for the city of Mapleton but not for St Matthew’s.  St. Matthew’s will continue to be a beacon of hope for the relief efforts.

Furniture and appliances are needed!!  
Please call Nancy Albers at 712-880-0232 if you have furniture or appliances to donate. 

St Matthew has set up rooms in their church to accommodate the distribution of needed items. 

Bath towels
Wash cloths
Laundry Detergent
Dish Soap
Canned food: fruit, vegetables, stew, soups etc
Not flour and sugar

If you are near Mapleton, just deliver the items to St Matthew at 504 Walnut (corner of Walnut and 5th St.)  If you are not near Mapleton for delivery, you may send a Wal Mart gift card to me and I will see that the items are purchased for you.  

Send gift cards to:

Ellie Menz
807 W. South
Jefferson, IA 50129

Thank you for your generous hearts, Ellie Menz 515-386-8420
