More than $4,800 has been raised by the members of the Adel Women’s Club to support the Good Samaritan Food Pantry’s operations and the Kids Summer Meals Program. The Backpack Program sends meals home with A-D-M School District and Van Meter School District students on weekends throughout the school year and Kids Summer Meals of a weekly bag of food are distributed at the GSFP site and area libraries.
Volunteers from the Adel Women’s Club help to pack the Kids Summer Meals bags every week. One in five Iowa children do not have enough to eat. The GSFP partners with the Adel Ministerial Alliance, local churches, civic organizations, and area residents to provide supplemental food for those with need.
The Adel Women’s Club raised funds this year for the GSFP, the Adel Historical Museum, the Adel Ministerial Alliance, the Adel Public Library, the ADM Scholarship Foundation, the Adel Volunteer Fire Department, the Crisis Intervention and Advocacy Center, and the GFWC/IFWC Scholarship.
