Service Projects

Windhaven is an assisted living center which is part of the Western Home Community in Cedar Falls. We visited the center and were play games with and get to know the residents. It was a lot of fun listening to their stories! During Covid lockdown, we were able to make snow sculptures outside the common room window as a way to connect with residents when they could not have visitors.

Food Bank

We volunteered at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank to pack meals for their BackPack Program. The BackPack Program provides chronically hungry kids with nutritious, kid-friendly, and non-perishable food for the weekends and school holidays (Food Bank website). We packaged enough bags to supply 576 children with meals for the week.

FIRST LEGO League Signs

We made “Good Luck” signs for each FLL and FLL Jr. team at theĀ  FLL Regional Qualifier and FLL Jr. Expo that we run in Cedar Falls. We also made thank you signs for all of the volunteers, thanking them for their hard work and making the day possible. We were really excited to see that some of the FLL teams were inspired to do the same. One team made us a thank you sign for all of our work to make the event possible. Another team put a sticky note on each of the signs that we made for the teams. These sticky notes wished the teams good luck. It was cool to see the FLL teams showing Gracious Professionalism towards each other, too!
