Give an Assist to The Salvation Army of Waterloo/Cedar Falls

The bells and red kettles have been put away for the season, but The Salvation Army of Waterloo/Cedar Falls is still collecting donations to support its year-round mission of helping vulnerable families in northeast Iowa, and during the month of January, you can help through $16.50 Campaign, presented by Slumberland Furniture.

The Salvation Army of Waterloo/Cedar Falls provides a wide variety of services: sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, creating recreational activities for youth, responding to disaster situations, and more.  The organization has raised approximately 75 percent of its $601,000 goal for the annual winter Red Kettle Campaign, which it is trying to reach by the end of January.  This month, donations via the $16.50 Campaign, presented by Slumberland Furniture, will help The Salvation Army achieve that winter target.

Each month as part of the $16.50 Campaign, the objective is for 100 Black Hawks fans to make a modest contribution of $16.50 to the featured charitable organization.  If that goal is achieved, collectively fans will have the opportunity to take pride in an impactful total gift of $1,650 at month’s end.

“The holidays are over, and the audible reminders from those ringing bells are done,” said Black Hawks President of Business Operations Joe Greene.  “Now we’re asking Black Hawks fans to remember that The Salvation Army is out there making a difference all the time.  Help them do that and reach their holiday goal by joining us during January’s $16.50 Campaign.”
