Foster Youth Graduation

Foster Youth Graduation

May 16 3:00 pm


Join us in helping them celebrate this great achievement in their lives.

Each year dozens of young men and women age out of the foster care system in the Cedar Rapids area. Just over 50% actually graduate from high school and less than 3% of these students will receive a Bachelor’s degree. To help encourage these students, the people of CR First are working with others in the community to provide an open house for these graduates. Celebrating such an accomplishment is something no young person should have to do alone.

This will be a Drive-Thru Celebration

Bring graduation cards and gift cards to places like Target, restaurants, movie theaters, or Amazon. We want to support our foster youth and help bring value, purpose, and meaning to their lives. Decorate your vehicle to make it more special.

DATE: Sunday, May 16, 2020

TIME: 3:00-4:00pm

LOCATION: 3233 Blairs Ferry Rd – Cedar Rapids

Your presence is so important to make this even possible. If you would prefer to just donate to a fund that will be divided up among the students you can give here:
