Help MHNA Keep the Kids Warm!

The Merle Hay Neighborhood Association is once again collecting new clothing donations for elementary school children through our Keep the Kids Warm program at the October quarterly meeting.

This year, we are collecting winter clothing for students at Hillis Elementary School. Donations of NEW coats, boots, stocking hats, gloves, snow pants and mittens are welcome. The following sizes are needed:

Coats & snow pants- (boys and girls): 6/6x, 7/8, 10/12, 16 or 18.
Boots (boys and girls): 1, 2, and 3, 4
Gloves (boys and girls): S, M, L & XL

We will also gladly accept monetary donations (checks made out to MHNA) and handle the shopping.

For more information about the clothing drive or to make a clothing or monetary donation, contact Kathy Battles by email at, or 515.865.3040. If you would like to drop your monetary or clothing donations at Kathy’s home, please feel free to do so. Her home address is 2729 62nd St., and she will also be happy to pick up things from your home for the kids at Hillis.

Please call ahead.

Our cut off time is November 14th so we can get them to the kids before Thanksgiving break.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
