Raising Money To Help Those In Need

Blue Grass Community Charitable Drop Off currently provides essential items to over 60 organizations that feed, clothe, and shelter people and animals in need in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. The proceeds from Blessings Boutique benefit these same organizations. Blue Grass Community Charitable Drop Off is doing even more by hosting New Year’s Eve in July FUNdraiser Gala.

The proceeds raised from this event will benefit these same organizations as well as celebrate the many volunteers who make these organizations possible. Enjoy this New Year’s Eve in July FUNdraiser Gala without the snow and without freezing. Become a Table Sponsor by reserving your table of eight ($120) and inviting your friends, family, and co-workers, or donate it in honor of food insecurity and make it available for public seating.

This is more than just a celebration; the proceeds raised are changing lives.
