Help MHNA Keep the Kids Warm

The Merle Hay Neighborhood Association is once again collecting clothing donations for elementary school children through our Keep the Kids Warm program. There is time to donate, and your help is greatly appreciated.

This year, we are collecting winter clothing for students at Hillis Elementary School. Donations of new coats, boots, stocking hats, gloves, and mittens are welcome. The following sizes are needed: Coats (boys and girls): 6/6x, 7/8, 10/12, 16 or 18. Boots (boys and girls): 1, 2, and 3.

For more information about the clothing drive or to make a 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 due to COVID-19, please feel free to do so. Her home address is 2729 62nd St., and she will be happy to collect everything for the kids at Hillis. Please call ahead. The deadline to donate is Saturday, November 21.
