Give A Gift, Bring A Book

Help us bring joy to others this holiday season!

Gift joy to families in need through our Johnston Gives program. The Johnston Partnership, in cooperation with the Johnston Community School District, provides a gift card for households with school-aged kids who see more hardship than joy at the holiday season. Last year, we helped over 300 students, and this year will be the same or more. $50 helps sponsor 1 child, but any dollar amount is helpful. With your monetary gift, please consider giving a reading or coloring book of your choice, spreading more holiday delight.


Monetary donations can come to us many ways:
  1. Mail a check to PO Box 975, Johnston, IA 50131, including Johnston Gives on the memo line.
  2. Drop off in person at our Food Pantry (5870 Merle Hay Rd, Ste C) during operating hours – Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays 9am-1pm or Tuesdays 4-6pm.
