Try Pie Holiday Volunteering

Try Pie is an employment program specifically for teens. Try Pie is limited to having the students only available to work after school. In the fall, there are so many orders that they need help keeping up. That's where volunteers come in! Holiday Volunteers help prep the kitchen and keep the pace to fulfill seasonal orders that allow Try Pie to provide meaningful work year-round.

Suitcases for Haiti

We are collecting large suitcases to send Christmas gifts to our sponsored kids at UCI in Haiti. The gifts are packed inside suitcases, which are then placed on a shipping container. The families in Haiti reuse these suitcases as cupboards and dressers inside their homes, so the suitcases are getting a second life! Win win!

Guidelines: The bigger the better! (Although we'll also take the smaller carry-on sizes.) The only thing that needs to work is the zipper. (Broken handles, broken wheels, scratched sides are okay!)

Suitcases may be dropped off at the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings or at the office in Cedar Falls at any time.

Men's Breakfast

Friday, September 29, 2023 @ 6:30 AM

Most of us lead busy lives and it’s tough to find time for anything outside of work and family obligations. Our monthly Men’s Breakfast is the perfect opportunity to break away from our daily schedules for good food, and connection with other guys. We’ll provide a brief message followed by a discussion at tables aimed at getting to know one another better. To cover the cost of food, we encourage a $3 donation.
