Debris Removal:

A contract service is removing debris from the right-of-way (curb) area using a systematic, quadrant method, until further notice. There is no detailed path, they are covering the city systematically. Notice will be given in advance before this service changes.

Supply Distributions:

The distribution center is being transitioned this week from Foundation Church to Upper Des Moines Opportunity (UDMO), now at 223 W. 7th Street, Spencer. Until this transition is complete, Foundation Church will continue to distributed supplies. Friday, 7/11 hours: 9am – 4pm.


Americorps teams will begin canvasing Spencer starting on Saturday to assess current unmet needs related to cleaning out basements, and mold mitigation. They have teams with them to support our volunteer & distribution management efforts, and will assist in streamlining efforts & supplementing our wonderful community volunteers. Christ in Action will also be in Spencer Monday, to join the clean-up efforts. All agencies will be coordinating through City Emergency Command, to ensure we maximize the efforts.
