SouthSide Cares is a non-profit organization formed in 2007 by a group of south side, Des Moines, IA residents to help those families afflicted by cancer and other chronic medical issues. Our organization has raised thousands of dollars to help those in need. Our annual benefits, tournaments and other events help us help those that need it most. Find out how you can contribute to someone in need through donations of money and time.

Our Mission

SouthSide Cares exists by the grace of God to benefit and inspire everyone it touches. Our organization is simple, solid and timeless…making a difference in the community through helping individuals and families facing hardships and emergencies by coordinating community fundraisers, auctions and raffles. 

Join Us

Hardships do not discriminate, which is why our year-round benefits get so much attention. Devote an evening to attend one of our meetings and see first-hand the families we help daily.

Our Events

Please join us on Saturday, November 16th for a benefit for Tim Wiley. Tim was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer and needs our assistance to raise money for medical bills and day to day living expenses as he is not able to work at this time. Join in the fun with raffles and a live auction. Tickets will be available for $5 for a chance to win a meat bundle from Brewers valued at $500! We hope to see you there!
