Women’s Shelter Wish List Drive

The Rochester Hy-Vee stores hosted a Wish List Drive for the Women’s Shelter on Saturday, June 3.

Women’s Shelter, Inc. assists victims of domestic violence and their children by establishing and maintaining a facility that provides temporary shelter and supplies to those who seek help.

Volunteers staffed tables at all four stores, greeting customers, handing out wish lists and recruiting donations.

At the end of the event, the Women’s Shelter gathered a total of $554 in cash and gift cards in addition to 26 packages of diapers, 48 packages of baby wipes and 86 personal care products. 

None of this could have been possible without the help of Hy-Vee’s generous customers.
