Applications now available with Upper Des Moines Opportunity for Back to School Supplies 

Applications are now available for families in need of assistance for the upcoming school year.

Upper Des Moines Opportunity Outreach Specialist Jolene Egertson explains.  "Our Back to School project provides assistance to income eligible families with children in grades Head Start through 12th, to purchase new clothes and also some school supplies.  This year, I believe we are doing $150.00 per child."

She notes that the application process is fairly easy.  "It's a pretty simple application, just a page to fill out.  If they have applied for our Energy Assistance Program this year, they are eligible and will not have to provide us with that income.  We don't have our applications online at the moment, so we have them here at the office ready to go, or we could mail an application, also."

She notes that it's best to call ahead to pick up forms. Contact Upper Des Moines Opportunity at 712.336.1112
