WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Northeast Iowa Food Bank will be offering a gift-wrapping service to mall shoppers in Waterloo and Cedar Falls this holiday season.

It's asking for donations in return.

To help with this fundraiser, the Food Bank is requesting holiday gift wrap donations at the following locations:

- K-Mart, 3810 University Ave., Waterloo

- Sam's Club, 210 E. Tower Park Dr., Waterloo

- Cedar Falls Financial Center, 602 Main St., Cedar Falls

- Northeast Iowa Food Bank, 1605 Lafayette St., Waterloo

“We are grateful for all of our partners who support us through events, fundraisers, food drives and volunteer opportunities during the holidays. We have seen a major increase in the need for food assistance both locally and throughout the 16 counties that we serve, and events like this allow us to raise awareness of that need,” said executive director Barbara Prather in a news release.

Food bank officials say every dollar they collect can provide up to four meals for families.
