Families Helping Families of Iowa (FHF) is seeking gift donations for their annual Winter Wonderland Holiday Celebration for children in foster care.
Each December, FHF hosts a holiday party for over 1,000 members of the foster care
community. This year’s event, taking place from on Dec. 17 at the Hawkeye Downs Expo Center, includes gifts, food, crafts, Santa Claus, and a visit to Santa’s workshop.
Donations — including toys or gift cards — will be collected through Dec. 2, and can be delivered to the FHF office at 6000 7th St SW in Cedar Rapids.
The event is free for children in foster care, those adopted from foster care and other children living in the foster household. Pre-registration is required.
In September, Families Helping Families of Iowa moved to 6000 Seventh St. SW in Cedar Rapids. The purchase of the new building was made possible, in large part, thanks to generous donations from The Hall-Perrine Foundation and Scott and Penny Olson.
The non-profit moved to its new location in August after selling its old building at 3516 Center Point Rd NE.
