September is Suitcases for Kids Month

Posted 09/01/16 by Kevin Platz and filed under:

We are broadening our horizons and kicking off Suitcases for Kids Month (Sept) with a bang. We just delivered 80 backpacks to Tanager Place to be a welcoming gift to the Residential Care Facility. This is where kids are temporarily placed for social and psychological needs.  They will receive our backpack upon arrival. (See Photo)

Two weeks ago we delivered 150 backpacks to the Four Oaks Facility for their residents.

We hope to be involved in the following and make an impact in our Community .

Four Oaks
Iowa Kids Net
Tanager Place
DHS
Boys and Girls Club
St. Lukes Outreach Program

So, watch for good things to come. 🙂

Suitcases for Kids

Posted 08/15/16 by Kevin Platz and filed under:

Pictured are members of the Public Relations Committee delivering 150 back packs full of stuffed animals and blankets to Four Oaks.  They will be distributed to the 150 kids currently in and out of residential care. Other organizations we are working with include the Cedar Rapids Boys & Girls Club, DHS and Iowa Kids Net.  All of these organizations help get the “suitcases” to those in need.  Watch for next drive in September to help keep this program going.

The look and appreciation from staff and kids when we delivered says it all.
