supportive heroes ($1,000+)

GVSS has been providing services to Grimes area residents since February 2011.  Since then we have provided more than 3,300 trips, driven over 81,000 miles and contributed over 13,800 hours of service to organize and provide assistance to residents of the community.

GVSS has over 170 clients and over 70 volunteers providing services. 

Because of outstanding community support, we have grown tremendously since 2011.  We do not employ any staff but are an all-volunteer organization.  We continue to need additional volunteers.  If you are interested, please contact our office at 515-986-5355.

Have you thought about giving back to your community?  Join 70+ volunteers, retired and full time workers who MAKE time to help those in need.  They shouldn't have all the fun!  You limit when and how much you volunteer.

We were formed in 2010 to provide assistance to area residents to help them stay in their homes.  We are an all-volunteer organization that provides transportation and other services without charge to those in need.  Our focus has always been "neighbors helping neighbors".

We are preparing for this winter.  If you'd be willing to help with snow removal for one of our seniors, contact Louise Hauger, Snow Patrol Coordinator, at 515-218-0779
