CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) -- Non-profit organization, "Together We Achieve" visited cedar rapids today where they continued their monthly food box giveaway drive.
The drive is helping those in most need; mainly those who weathered so much hardships this past year, from the pandemic to the Derecho.
They say the support they've received from the community is what makes their efforts so worth while.
Raymond Siddell, Founder of "Together We Achieve" commented, "We have a thousand boxes, anywhere from a thousand to 1,188 boxes a month. We watch the community members show up, and wait in line for several hours. We started at eleven o'clock today; had our first car at about 8:45. They line up early, they wait in line for a free food-box, and they keep coming back."
The non-profit set forth a goal back in January to distribute 12,000 food boxes by the end of the year.
So far, they have given away 5,000 boxes of food. Their next event is scheduled for Saturday, May 22nd.
