We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” – Stacia Tauscher, dancer and artist 

On Thursday, August 4, CROSS held the 24th Annual Back to School Giveaway for the children of low and no income families. This year a record number of 1,641 children were provided with a new backpack filled with the basic supplies needed to begin their school year! Although the Giveaway was scheduled to begin at 3:00 PM, parents with children began showing up as early as 10:15 AM waiting in line for nearly five hours in order to receive the supplies their children would need for school.

CROSS Ministries is a non-profit homelessness prevention agency with the Presbytery of Des Moines. Since our creation in the mid 1970s, we have grown exponentially to offer services to thousands of community members each year. We provide direct financial emergency assistance, food, and personal hygiene products to low and no income households.  

Come visit us if you or someone you know needs help in the following areas:

Emergency Assistance

  • Rent or mortgage
  • Electric/gas, water
  • Personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies, laundry vouchers, bus tokens
  • Food assistance
  • School supplies (ONLY during our annual Back-to-School giveaway event)


*Applicants must provide identification for each person in the household
**Assistance is not guaranteed, but will be determined on an individual basis
***CROSS Ministries serves all people equally regardless of age, race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation
