Giving Gala

What is the Giving Gala?

The Giving Gala is an annual event put on by the Family Resource Center to raise funds for the services and goods we provide to the community. We serve a large number of people in 23 counties across Western Iowa. The Giving Gala helps us raise money to help provide care for the less fortunate in these communities in the case of an emergency or impending homelessness. Our services also help the elderly and those with mental/physical disabilities to retain or develop a sense of autonomy while also getting the help they need.

Attendees can bid on donated items in the live and silent auctions, such as sports game tickets, quilts, and other items donated by businesses or individuals in the community. Attendees can also donate products like toilet paper, toothbrushes, hand soap, and much more to help the clients we serve on a daily basis.

These are items that we consider necessities and take for granted on a daily basis, but for many Family Resource Center consumers, it is often difficult to have enough money to buy:

  • Laundry Soap
  • Baby Wipes
  • Diapers of All Sizes
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Bath Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Shaving Supplies
  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Tissues
  • Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
  • Dish Soap
  • Liquid Hand Soap
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Cleaning Products

Please feel free to drop off any of these items at the Family Resource Center throughout the year. Thank you!

Helping them become more self-sufficient, improving the quality of early childhood care, supporting children and adults with special needs in their homes, and keeping families and children safe and nurtured.
