Warm clothing will be available for Ankeny school nurses to provide students on an as-needed basis throughout the year. Project Fresh Start also donated items to TAKE at 406 SW School Street to be available to residents in need. Remaining items will be stored and serve as a foundation for next year's Project F.E.W.D. winter clothing drive.
Project Fresh Start would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of this year's drive including, Ankeny Community Schools students, parents, and staff, as well as Ankeny’s faith community, Rotary Club, the staff at the Neveln Center, community donors, and all others who gave of their time and effort.
Project Fresh Start, supported by the Ankeny Community School District through
the Community Education Department, is an Ankeny-based volunteer program that
has provided free school supplies, backpacks, prom dresses, and more to
students for over a decade. Project Fresh Start accepts donations for three
on-going projects: Days of Giving, Prom Dress Give Away, and F.E.W.D.
(Faith and Education Warm Donations). For more information on the Ankeny
