Eighth Annual Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger Results
Thanks to the generosity of our partners, patrons, and donors, the Des Moines Symphony is pleased to announce that its Eighth Annual Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger: A Symphony of Caring generated enough donations to provide 44,292 meals to hungry children and families in Iowa.
Food donations were collected at Des Moines metro-area Bank of the West and Hy-Vee locations throughout June 2016. Attendees at the Des Moines Symphony’s 23rd Annual Yankee Doodle Pops on July 1 were encouraged to drop off non-perishable items and in turn were provided with a special discount on the 2016-2017 Masterworks concert of their choice.
The Des Moines Symphony is proud to lead this important effort toward eliminating hunger in our communities. We would like to thank our 2016 Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger partners for their invaluable assistance and leadership:
