 • Angel Tree tag program has been cancelled by UDMO.

 Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc. would like to announce that after much careful thought and consideration the Hamilton County UDMO Outreach office will no longer provide the Angel Tree tag program.  The decision was based on several reasons but the main reason was due to the time and staff constraints this program requires.  UDMO is making this announcement early in the season with hopes that another entity might pick up this opportunity for families in Hamilton County.  UDMO would like to thank those who participated in the Angel Tree program in previous years as a participant, someone who adopted an Angel Tree tag or those who gave a monetary donation towards this program.  This program made a big difference for those who participated and UDMO does hope to see it continue in the future!
