It wouldn’t be a Waukee festival without an element of giving back to the community. Organizers are asking attendees to bring non-perishable food items, new, unwrapped toys or monetary donations that will be distributed to those in need by Waukee Area Christian Services. Donations can be dropped off during WinterFest at the Community Center or during the week before WinterFest at the Waukee Public Works Building (805 University Ave).
