Fill The Mayflower Event: Friday and Saturday, May 10-11
Valley West Mall and Select Van and Storage - a Mayflower company have teamed up with the FreeStore and Children and Families of Iowa to collect gently used household items for distribution to victims of domestic violence.
Each year thousands of domestic violence victims across our state flee their homes and must start over. Often these individuals have little more than the clothes on their back. The donations collected during this event will be delivered to the FreeStore and distributed to those individuals free of charge as they set up their new homes.
Drop off your donations and know you will be helping a family start a new, better chapter in their lives. Thanks to donors like you, the FreeStore was able to provide household goods to over 676 families of domestic violence and their families in the last 4 years.
