Organizers in Evansdale are thanking God, and the community, for an outpouring of support for Angel's Park.

The park, founded in the wake of the murder of cousins Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins, serves as a memorial for those we've lost in the Cedar Valley. Last week, organizers made a plea for several tons of topsoil, which they say is necessary to seed grass on the island, and complete the park.

Now, organizer Dona Frickson says the donations have come rolling in, and that they're close to their goal, if not past it. She said, 'big things are coming,' early next week.

"God is good!" the group wrote on Facebook. "I cannot say thank you enough to all the wonderful people stepping up for the Angels Park! Our 'Angels' have been busy tapping shoulders and hearts."
