Stuff the Truck

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. through Nov. 27.

Requested items include:

  • kitchen knife sets
  • suitcases
  • dinnerware sets
  • toilet paper
  • paper towels
  • Kleenex
  • all-purpose cleaner
  • dish soap
  • laundry detergent

We can only accept NEW items for Stuff the Truck. Thank you for supporting these young people as they start out on their own.
