BEER. WOMEN. DES MOINES.

BARLEY'S ANGELS GIVE BACK

Angels Give Back

The first meeting of Barley's Angels–Greater Des Moines was designed to gauge the interest of area women in supporting a local chapter. One of the clear desires to emerge from that meeting was to incorporate ways to give back to the community. We love that about this group!

Each year, Barley's Angels–Greater Des Moines holds an event specifically designed to raise money for a local charity. We partner with that organization to learn about their mission and needs, then create a unique beer event that generates funds for them.

New in 2017, we celebrated National Volunteer Month in April by offering volunteer support to three charities we have previously supported financially.

Our first celebration of National Volunteer Month took us to AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport where we cuddled puppies after surgery.

We took one evening to prep ducks for the annual Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS) Duck Derby. We got nearly 3,200 ducks ready to race!
