CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — What better way to spend a muggy summer Saturday than by eating ice cream?

Kids and their families gathered at the HD Youth Center for their ice cream social Saturday afternoon.

Donations from businesses in the area made the day possible. It’s one of several events the center holds for the kids in the area, specially in these summer months before the “back to school” push hits.

“We have prizes, ice cream, cupcake, decorating, bingo with prizes that our community partners have donated to the center to make today an even greater day than usual,” said Darcie Torres, the center’s director.

Volunteers helped out with serving the kids and hosting games.

Torres said the next event will be a Backpack for Kids campaign just in time for the start of school
