Hy-Vee

Hy-Vee Inc., in partnership with Variety – the Children’s Charity, has wrapped up a fundraising campaign that will provide at least one bike to a child in communities with a Hy-Vee grocery store. Through Petals for Pedals, a portion of each dozen roses that were sold for $10 at Hy-Vee stores went to the fundraiser. Employees from Hy-Vee, Variety and Bike World, supplier of the bicycles, assembled them at Hy-Vee’s corporate campus. Each bike will come with a helmet and lock.

Burn Boot Camp

Burn Boot Camp’s Be Their Muscle event raised more than $8,050 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The money will be used to help send children to an MDA Summer Camp.
