WDM Community Foundation supports club initiative

WDM Lacrosse recently received a $2500 grant from the West Des Moines Community Foundation to help the club bring the game to the less fortunate.  The donation is part of a fund-raising initiative this season to provide financial assistance to qualifying parents and players in the WDM community.  The effort will allow more youth in the community to be part of the club and enjoy the sport of lacrosse.

The club thanks the Foundation for their support and encourages parents, citizens and business owners to donate to this worthy cause. For more information, please contact the club.
