Clive Community Services – Announcement of Official Location

Clive Community Services

Announcement:  The “official” location of Clive Community Services is …
2190 NW 82nd Street in Clive, Iowa
(please note this is NOT a mailing address.  Use the PO Box number 71622.)

With much thanksgiving we announce that Clive Community Services has found a location at last. We are grateful for the time, energy and generosity that Schoenauer Properties has shown to give us this excellent location within the Crestview School of Inquiry neighborhood.

The location is established, but it may take two months – hopefully less – to open for business.  We will be occupying the north half of the lower level.  Eventually the facility will house a Food Pantry, Clothes Closet, educational “Life Skills” and a Free Medical Clinic.  The initial focus will be a “no boundaries” DMARC food pantry.

The “no boundaries” food pantry will help anyone who is hungry as stipulated by DMARC.  Other services offered will be for the benefit of Clive residents and surrounding neighbors and will be added as directors are found to operate them.

Here is the “rub.”  It takes funding for all of this to happen and we need your “help”.   And just so you know, while the cost of this location is more than our original budget for a space that would house all our needs … any of the other locations we looked at were more costly for less space.  The value given to us for this location cannot be found anywhere else in Clive.  This is where we are supposed to be.

The absolute easiest way to help is to click on our website or Facebook pages listed below and click on the donate button, or send a check to Clive Community Services, P.O Box 71622, Clive, IA  50325.  Then contact Linda and volunteer.

We look forward to serving the Clive community, its neighbors and you!!!
