6th Annual Giving Tree & Family Christmas Party!

But our 6th Annual Giving Tree & Family Christmas Party is just around the corner and we need your help to be ready in time!


Families Helping Families of Iowa's 6th Annual Giving Tree & Family Christmas Party was started five-years ago by placing Christmas trees in local businesses to collect presents that were distributed to children in foster care and children adopted from foster care at a fun, family party. Our 6th Annual Holiday Celebration will be at the Hawkeye Downs Expo Center on Saturday, December 13, 2014 from 2:00PM-4:00PM.


We are looking for individuals, organizations, and churches to volunteer and help with this event. We will need people to help with set-up, registration, the event itself, and tear down.


If you are interested in helping with this wonderful event, please contact Executive Director Jan by calling 319-294-9706, or send email to office@fhfia.org


Thank you for helping make the season a little brighter for children in foster care!
