Fundraiser to benefit Twin Parks

Shoppers asked to ‘round up’ at grocery stores

Local shoppers will have the opportunity to help support the revitalizations of Twin Parks through “rounding up” while shopping at Fareway and Hy-Vee grocery stores.

Between Feb. 17 and Feb. 22, customers at either store can ask for their shopping total to be rounded up at the register, with all proceeds going to benefit the parks.

This opportunity comes from a partnership between Webster City Twin Parks Revitalization Committee.

“We know small steps and small ways to participate matter,” said Mary Fortune, one of the leaders of the revitalization committee. “Contribute less than a dollar when you are grocery shopping in town. We’re lucky to live in a community with two grocery stores, and even luckier they support the work we do.”

In addition to the Round Up at the Register event, SHIFT Happens has announced that 100% of the funds raised at its dodgeball tournament on March 6 will go toward the revitalization of East Twin Park. SHIFT Happens is partnering with the Webster City Rotary Club for this event.

Those wishing to make a larger donation can give to the Friends of Webster City Parks and Recreation through Enhance Hamilton County Foundation, with a note to which park the donation is intended for. Cash, checks, land and grain revenues are all accepted as donations.

For questions regarding the funds, contact Darcy Swon, director of the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation by calling 515-835-0437, or email dswon@enhancehamiltoncounty.org.

There is also a GoFundMe account open as well: https://www.gofundme.com/f/east-twin-park-is-saved-now-let039s-revitalize-it 

The next meeting of the Webster City Parks and Recreation Board is Feb. 20 at 5:15 p.m. in the Sampson Room in Fuller Hall.
