Each fall, the Waukee Police Department raises money in the community to put toward feeding the hungry at Thanksgiving time. The department works with the Waukee Fareway to purchase baskets with all the makings of a great Thanksgiving meal. Families in need are identified, and the baskets are delivered the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving.
Email the Police Department or call 515-978-7979 with questions about this program. Donations are graciously accepted in person or mailed to the Waukee Public Safety Building located at 1300 SE L.A. Grant Parkway, Waukee, IA 50263.
