DU Good Day – Des Moines

Join fellow Bulldogs across the country in giving back to the community while bringing together Drake alumni, family, and friends. In Des Moines, alumni will be teaming up with Joppa Outreach in a week long event to help build tiny homes for their tiny home community. Joppa’s mission is to create a community of unconditional love, support, and hope, as we work together to end homelessness in Central Iowa. Want to learn more about Joppa? Hear the stories of people the organization has helped.

The week long event (September 11-16) takes place in the parking lot across from the Alumni House, located at 2700 University Ave. Des Moines, IA 50311. This event is family friendly, but all volunteers must be at least ten-years-old. Please wear closed-toed shoes, attire for building a home, and your Drake gear! Be sure to bring a water bottle as well.
