Meals From the Heartland - DMU Admissions Office

Des Moines University’s employees and students are committed to making the community a better place to live. Faculty, staff and students are actively encouraged to “do a world of good”. On August 30, seven members of the Admissions Office volunteered for a 2-hour shift with Meals from the Heartland during their 2012 packaging event. During that small amount of time, their group managed to package about 750 meals.
