CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Families around Hiawatha woke up to Easter eggs in their yards Sunday morning from the Friends of Hiawatha Parks and Recreation Foundation.

This is the second year the organization has put on its “Egg My Yard” fundraiser. It started last year during the pandemic as a way for the foundation to continue to give the community some Easter fun, while still hosting a fundraiser.

Over 30 homes in the Hiawatha area signed up to have their yards egged.

The money goes toward supporting park updates, recreation programs, and anything that has to do with parks and rec supplies.

”It’s just another opportunity for us to get involved with the community and build relationships with them. Also a great idea for families to enjoy the Easter holiday and get outside,” Kelly Willadsen, foundation member, said.

The foundation filled about 1,800 eggs for this year’s fundraiser.
