Can you give even one hour this summer to help kids in Urbandale?

If you are ready to get involved in your community, we need you! UCAN will be serving a free summer lunch to any child 18 and under at Murphy Park and Aldersgate Church from 11-11:35am Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We are currently in need of lead volunteers who can commit to one day a week for the summer (we will have subs available when you are unable to be there!). This lead volunteer would be responsible for picking up the food at Urbandale High School and transporting it to the food site, where you will be met by additional volunteers. The lead volunteer will help maintain the count of children served, and coordinate returning the equipment back to the Urbandale High School once serving is done. The total time commitment each day will be about 1 1/4 hours. If you are interested in committing to serve as a lead volunteer email Laura at or sign up at the link below. This volunteer will need a short volunteer orientation (approximately 45 minutes).

We are also in need of volunteers to distribute food each day. This will take approximately 45 minutes and these volunteers will work with a lead volunteer. Sign up: PICK YOUR VOLUNTEER DAYS HERE
