In the Spirit of Giving
The Iowa City Crisis Center is an amazing organization when it comes to giving back to their community. Their Food Bank program distributes about 3000 bags a month which feeds about 4000 people per month at a cost of $6 per bag. They do not turn anyone down who comes in and signs up for food. We wanted to help with this opportunity to help our community as well. We gathered a $2,000 donation, which The Iowa City Crisis Center said would feed ALL of their families for almost a week. We were glad to help, but it really made us think we need to work harder to collect more money for next year to feed more families for longer. The Iowa City Crisis Center informed us a lot of the food is donated, so they take cash contributions to buy things like proteins.

Another charity that we decided to work with this holiday season, was Waypoint in Cedar Rapids, Ia. Waypoint strengthens and empowers women and families in their life’s journey by providing advocacy, crisis intervention, supportive services, shelter, quality child care, and community leadership. Again, we are impressed by the amount of good they do in our community and wanted to thank them for their efforts with a donation of $2,000.
