Call 989-0106 FreeStore Receives $5,000 Grant FreeStore in Des Moines has received a $5,000 grant from Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino through its 2009 Community Betterment Grant Program. Grant funds will help to fund the costs for furniture pickup and delivery to domestic violence victims in Polk, Warren and Dallas counties. In 2009 the FreeStore, located at 1020 24 " St. in West Des Moines, filled 258 requests for furniture and delivered 187 tons of household goods valued at $402,000. The FreeStore is an all-volunteer organiza- tion with no paid staff and operates on a budget of $30,000 a year. For more information and a list of items collected by the FreeStore visit their web site at www.thefree store.org. "We are extremely pleased to have received this funding from Prairie Meadows this year," said Terry. Swanson, Board Chair. "These funds will help ensure basic items sucth as beds, tables, coucches and cookware are givem at no charge to do- mesttic violence victims as they start new indepen- dentt lives in safe environ- memts." TThe Prairie Meadows Grarnts Advisory Commit- tee, (comprised of commu- nity,, business and educa- tiom leaders from the grea=ter Des Moines area, reviews all grant requests and recommends funding levells. Recommendations are tthen presented to the Prairie Meadows Board of Directors for review and approval. Prairie Mead- ows Community Better- ment Grants are given to projects in one of four cat- egories: Arts & Culture, Economic Development, Education and Human Serv:ices. Prairie Meadows re- cently achieved a mile- stone in giving more than $1 billion through taxes, granits and charitable do- nati,ons to the State of Iowa. More than $435 mil- lion of that figure has re- mained right here in our community to promote education, economic de- velopment, agriculture, jobs and tourism. Prairie Meadows stands alone in its charitable giving by re- turning 43% of its rev- enues back to the commu- nity and continues to work towards improving the quality of life for every Io- wan, every day. Daffodil Day at Medicap Pharmacy Medicap Pharmacy is joining forces with the Ameri- " :- can Cancer Society and the 2010 American Cancer Soci- ety Daffodil Days campaign in and around Polk County. Daffodil Days celebrates the Society's mission of saving lives and creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The daffodil is the first flower of spring and the American Cancer Society's symbol of hope for a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life. Daffodils will be available at participating Medicap Pharmacy locations, including Norwalk, Thursday, March 18 and Friday, March 19, while supplies last. They will be donating flowers to local community groups, spreading awareness and goodwill in honor, memory and support of those who have heard the words, "You have cancer." "Although Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils to people in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers. It is Medicap Pharmacy and everyone's opportunity to share hope for a world free of cancer.
