EPI's Giving Tree

For many the holidays are a time when we demonstrate our affection by giving gifts. This is true for many of the persons EPI serves as well. However, there is a small number of persons served whose loved ones, for a multitude of reasons, are not in a position to take part in gift exchanges or even to help meet basic needs.

More than a decade ago, the staff at EPI took it upon themselves and created the Giving Tree to see that these individuals are remembered around the holidays.

In recent years the Giving Tree has grown with over 250 wishes - each representing a modest need that would otherwise go unmet. This year the staff at EPI are seeking the community’s support to ensure each wish will be fulfilled yet again.

Together with the Waterloo Police Protective Association we are again taking Giving Tree on the road. The Giving Tree will travel to the following partner location:

  • Waterloo City Hall on December 4, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

The Giving Tree holds tags which communicates modest needs (such as winter coats, clothing, toys, music CDs) to an army of secret Santas hoping to brighten someone’s holiday.

Wrapped gifts can be returned to us at any time - with December 15 being the last date to drop off gifts.

Gifts of cash, wrapping paper and hand written holiday cards to persons served are also accepted to aid in spreading the joy this holiday season. On behalf of all of us here at EPI, thank you!

Healthiest State :: Run, Walk or Roll - October 8th, 2014 - Prairie Lakes Park - back lake in Cedar Falls

Check out our walk event page for all the details!

EPI is invested in the wellbeing of our community. On Wednesday, October 8, 2014 we are hosting our second annual wellness walk in support of Iowa’s effort to become the healthiest state in the nation by 2016. We will be walking a one-kilometer walk along with the rest of the state at Prairie Lakes Park in Cedar Falls.

This years walk is a little different, with the walk kicking off at noon and a drawing for a great, fitness related prize afterwards! HyVee will be there with fruit and water for all participants!

You can sign up to walk with us here - Healthiest State Walk with EPI

Last year was a beautiful day. We had 115 run, walk or rollers in 2012 and over 175 in 2013 come out and support the cause!
