EWI® of Des Moines is proud to support local organizations and programs that have a direct impact on our community.

    Over the past 5 years, we have fostered a strong partnership with the Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS). Activities that take place throughout the year are: literacy events including reading to children and Scrapbooking Saturdays, assisting with the YESS Duck Derby, and a flower garden project that has helped to beautify the building grounds and school supply drives.

    In 2008, EWI of Des Moines and Storey Kenworthy partnered together to donate funds to the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) for much needed office equipment and supplies.

    Other past philanthropic projects have supported Ruth Harbor, Young Women’s Resource Center, and YWCA.

    The 2018 Projects will include ongoing support of Capitol View Elementary and new projects working with Young Women's Resource Center.
