Midwest Family Lending has chosen to support Miracle Travel Works in the month of January and we encourage you to as well.
Miracle Travel Works was founded in September 2010 by a group of close friends who witnessed firsthand the financial difficulties experienced by family and good friends as they attempted to cope with their children’s’ terminal and chronic illnesses. We realized the great need that these, and many other, families have and we also realized that we can do more than just make a small donation. For this reason we formed Miracle Travel Works to ask for your help, too. Together, we can help even more families through their difficult times.

You are welcome to stop by unannounced between 9:00am and 5:00 pm during the week and grab a bag or two. If you prefer to call, just dial 515-252-7107 and let us know when you plan to stop by and we will make sure someone is available to help you!
