Stuff the Truck

November 28, 2023 @ 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Junior League of Cedar Rapids and Foundation 2 Crisis Services are partnering to serve young people aging out of foster care for our third annual Stuff the Truck fundraiser!

Join us on TUesday, Nov. 28 between 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Craft’d in Downtown Cedar Rapids to ‘stuff the truck’ with requested basic living supplies to support young people establishing independence after foster care. You can also drop items at our Administrative Location, 1714 Johnson Ave. NW, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The suitcases contain basic necessities for independent living – perhaps items that a family member or loved one helped you get for your first apartment. Each suitcase is valued at approximately $700.

Requested items include kitchen knife sets, suitcases, dinnerware sets, toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, all-purpose cleaner, dish soap, laundry detergent, queen size comforters, queen size blankets, and trash bags.

Want to donate from home? All donations to our Giving Tuesday fundraiser will be matched by Alliant Energy, Diamond V, ESCO Group, and Van Meter and Transamerica. You can give on our website or Facebook page on Giving Tuesday.
