New 'Generosity Adventure' helping community

The West Des Moines United Methodist church began a Generosity Adventure last fall. Starting with a seemingly small change by not charging for its weekly meal has made a huge difference in the community. The church was able to raise more than $7,000 to give to Booster Pak, a local organization that provides backpack meals to students at the elementary school next door.

Not only has this project raised funds, it has created new relationships between the church and its neighbors, the school, and business in West Des Moines. The church has branched out to begin a Little Free Pantry and frequently sends volunteers to Hillside Elementary.
