Family & Children's Council works to raise $5,000

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Family & Children's Council of Black Hawk County is faced with a challenge to raise up to $5,000.

Thursday, the United Auto Workers Local 838 presented a $1,000 check to the non-profit. Earlier this month, an anonymous donor said they would match any donation up to $5,000. The money raised will be used towards helping prevent child abuse in our community.

"Child abuse prevention is a year round activity for our agency. We have parenting groups and initiatives that go on throughout the summer and the school year that focus on keeping our kids safe," said Shelley Smith, Executive Director. 

The Family & Children's Council has already raised over $3,000 toward their goal.
