Ways You Can Help

Mentor Iowa is looking for individuals/companies to be adopt a family sponsors for our children this holiday season.  Adopt a family sponsor’s work with the Mentor Iowa office to purchase needed items for the family.  Mentor Iowa distributes a wish list to mentors, and then the mentor discusses with their mentee’s family what they need and want for the holiday season.  Items needed typically include:  clothing, household items, shoes, books, games and whatever else is on the family’s wish list.  The average amount spent on each child is approximately $75, but you can choose the amount you want to spend on the children.  If interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact the Mentor Iowa office at 515-277-9797.

Mentor Iowa would like to thank the O’Donnell & Friends Open for selecting Mentor Iowa as the charity of choice from their golf outing in 2016.  As a result of their hard work and efforts, Mentor Iowa received $103,198.25 to help create the Dan & Dee O’Donnell scholarship. This scholarship will benefit Mentor Iowa mentees who are in their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years in college.
