The Waukee Police Department is initiating its annual Thanksgiving Gift Basket Program. The PD hopes to provide more than 20 Waukee-area families in need with great holiday meals, and they’re asking for the public’s help in supporting the growth of this program.

Monetary donations will be used to purchase food items for the holiday baskets from the Waukee Fareway. Baskets will be delivered to families on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving.

Donations are being accepted now through Wednesday, Nov. 15 at the front office of the Waukee Public Safety Building at 1300 SE L.A. Grant Parkway. The hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please bring cash or checks made payable to the Waukee Police Department.

Please call 515-978-7979 with questions. If you’re unable to stop by in person, donations will be accepted via mail sent to: Waukee Police Department, 1300 SE L.A. Grant Parkway, Waukee, IA 50263.
