'Red Wagon' campaign a huge success

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Priority #1 of Dickinson County had its Red Wagon symbolizing America's Promise set up at the west entrance of Wal-Mart during August.

We were asking for donations of school supplies and the area people responded in a big way.

All the school supplies collected were distributed to children at Bomgaars on Sunday, Aug. 14 through the Upper Des Moines Opportunity -- Back To School Program.

Over 100 families participated.

A special thank you to everyone who gave so many generous donations, and to Wal-Mart and its staff.
