Lost Island hosts Christmas In July food drive

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Lost Island Water Park collected more than 500 cans as part of their Christmas in July food drive.

The water park partnered with the Northeast Iowa Food Bank to help restock the food pantry. The park offered $2 admission discounts for anyone bringing a nonperishable food item.

"We want to give back to our community and to the food bank," said Justin Wissler, a team leader at Lost Island.

The Christmas in July food drive was designed to raise awareness of the year-round need in Black Hawk County. An average of 1,200 households need emergency and supplemental food assistance each month.
