Serving families over Thanksgiving

On November 21, Young Parents Network held their annual Thanksgiving Dinner at Polk Alternative Education Center, one of three sites served by the YouthPort collaboration. This year, the dinner was graciously sponsored by Lynch Ford. Together, Young Parents Network served 105 participants and children, made possible by 49 volunteers!

Thank you to Daybreak Rotary, YPN board members, University of Iowa and Mount Mercy students, and all other volunteers who helped make it a successful meal by setting up, serving, and cleaning up!
