The Ankeny Service Center is gearing up for our annual holiday assistance program. Last year over 230 families and 650 children received gift certificates, toys, clothes, and other items. This was only possible thanks to the generosity of individuals, business, and churches in our community.

Please consider one or more of the following ways to offer a special holiday to a family:

Gift certificates: Cards can be used by families for Thanksgiving meals and/or Christmas gifts. 

Monetary Donations: Donations can be made on our website:, or mailed to the Ankeny Service Center. All gifts will go toward providing holiday items for individuals and families.

Personal Care and Household Items: Donations of personal care and household items are always appreciated, as we do include these items with all of the holiday packages. Please call the Ankeny Service Center office to arrange a time to drop items off.

Sponsor a Family: As a sponsor, you will be matched up with a family, and a wish list will be provided. Send your information via the form on this page and we will contact you.

Individual Gifts: We can always use toys, stocking stuffers, clothes, first aid items, etc. These items will be added to packages as needed. Please call the Ankeny Service Center office to arrange a drop off time.

Because of you, we were able to bring the holiday spirit to so many homes in our community last year. With your help, we can do it again this year.

Thank you for supporting our community!!
