Family and Children’s Council of Black Hawk County has been presented with a challenge from an anonymous friend to raise $5,000 during the month of May. This friend’s promise is to match the amount of money that Family and Children’s Council is able to raise up to $5,000, with the deadline being May 31st, 2013. The importance of this donation is vital for the funding of programs that FCC provides for the summer. Due to the slower tendency of donations during the summer months this friend’s offer comes at a perfect time.
By having this challenge set for Family and Children’s Council it motivates our organization to work even harder to help the community prevent child abuse and strengthen families. This generous match offer is only available to FCC if funds are raised these next two weeks. Being able to create these funds amplifies the progress that FCC is able to make in the community for betterment of families in Black Hawk County.
Donations can be given in the form of cash, check, or a pledged commitment to Executive Director Shelly Smith. Donations can be dropped off at our office, mailed in, or by visiting our website at www.fccouncil.net and going to the “Donate Today” tab at the top. For mailing purposes our office is located at 500 East 4th Street Suite 414 in Waterloo.
Family and Children’s Council is a local non-profit agency working to prevent child abuse and strengthen families. Providing hospital screenings of new families, parenting classes, empowering mother’s and father’s, a school based sexual abuse prevention program that teaches children personal protection strategies and providing baby safety equipment to struggling families are all services that are provided free of charge.
For more information on our fundraising opportunity or on Family & Children’s Council, please contact Shelly Smith at 319.234.7600, ext. 17 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
