Largest Day of Volunteering in Cedar Valley History (photos)
- 2401 Hudson Road, Cedar Falls, IA 50613 United States
On January 20, the KCRR staff volunteered alongside over 1,200 community members, students, businesses, and more for the Pack The Dome: Martin Luther King Jr National Day of Service event at the UNI-Dome. Together, they helped assemble a record-breaking 40,000 BackPacks of food for northeast Iowa children through the Northeast Iowa Food Bank’s BackPack Program.
The BackPack Program aims to provide meals for the 13,680 children experiencing hunger in northeast Iowa. Last year the Northeast Iowa Food Bank distributed 150,000 BackPacks across its 16 county service area.
This event is expected to be the single largest volunteer event ever held in the Cedar Valley.
