Beat the Heat Splash

Start date: July 15, 2018

End date: August 15, 2018

Beat the Heat Splash

As the dog days of summer arrive, Iowa’s heat index and humidity rise and so too do the expenses. The Beat the Heat Splash campaign is dedicated to providing summer programming for clients to pay for the rising cost of air-conditioning and water utilities, pool passes, and other summer activities. When we reach designated fundraising benchmarks, local celebrities have agreed to get splashed with a bucket of ice water.

Date: September 21, 2018

Location: Johnson County Fairgrounds

BBQ Bash

Bring yourself and your appetite to the BBQ Bash, our annual fall shindig, on September 21. It’s a night of fun and games, delicious food, and lively music for the entire family at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.

Out of the Cold

Start date: December 1, 2018

End date: March 15, 2019

Out of the Cold

When Iowa’s frigid winter blows in, the change in weather can be life-threatening for people experiencing homelessness.  As temperatures drop, they are at an increased risk of developing exposure-related conditions and dying from the below-zero temperatures. The Out of the Cold campaign funds our low-barrier Winter Emergency Shelter and Overflow Shelter and provides increased shelter capacity which is essential to accommodate the amplified need during winter months.
