Audience Rationale: People are going to care because it is important to help and care for the less fortunate people in our society. It is especially important to care for these people during the winter months when living conditions are at its difficult. By working together, we can help improve the quality of life of the homeless by volunteering a fraction of our time or by donating money to our cause.
Central Iowa Shelter & Services' mission is to provide free shelter and meals to homeless adults regardless of physical or emotional conditions, and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency.
Call to Action: Preserving Human Dignity.
Every year, hundreds of homeless people in Central Iowa spend their winters in the cold due to a lack of shelter. That is why we at Central Iowa Shelter and Services center offer housing and food to these people during this time of need. You too can help make a significant difference in these people’s lives in a variety of ways. Get involved with Central Iowa Shelter and Services by donating to our cause or by simply volunteering a fraction of your time. Volunteers can support our mission by serving meals, running our clothing closet, working the food pantry, helping at the front desk as well as many other ways. If volunteering hours do not work for you, please take a moment to donate to our cause. Both financial and gift donations are greatly appreciated as they help us reach the needs for those in our care. With your help, we will be able to provide these people with so much more than a place to stay. We will provide them with a home. For more information on how to help our cause, call 515-284-5719 or visit our website at www.centraliowashelter.org.
