Our team is excited to participate in the 49th RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa), to help ensure those in need aren’t going hungry. This annual week-long event challenges cyclist to travel a 430-mile state-wide route across Iowa, with planned daily stops in various towns along the way.
RAGBRAI is the longest, largest and oldest bicycle touring event in the world, bringing thousands of cycling enthusiasts together from across the nation and even around the world.
We have a small group of riders confirmed this year and with your support, each turn of the pedals will help provide meals for local seniors and families.

Unfortunately, many of the Senior Citizens in our Meals on Wheels program face isolation, which is especially difficult during the holiday season. Our annual Santa for Seniors program helps combat this by delivering over 1,400 gifts to homebound Senior Citizens in our program. Thanks to our continued partnership with UFS, we are happy to carry on this tradition. Volunteers are needed to stuff gift bags and deliver these much needed gifts. Help us spread a little Holiday Cheer!

So many in our community face hardship all year, which can make the holidays difficult. We have once again adapted our Children’s Toy Shop into an Angel Tree for the kids within our youth program this year. We are in need of individuals, families or businesses to sponsor the children and families on our Angel Tree.
Your support can help make the holiday season a little brighter for a local family.
