Annual Events

Annual Events: Two annual events are organized and sponsored. The goal of these events is to strengthen families and improve the general well-being of Cedar Rapids youth and the youth enrolled in the program.

  • Easter Egg Hunt: This annual event is sponsored by The Henry Davison Youth Center and is a fun way for families to get together and have some fun! Registration is NOT required. The event is frenzied, fast and free, and is open to the public.
  • Backpack & School Supply Distribution: The greater Cedar Rapids business community really comes together to collaborate to give children the supplies they need to start school. The HD Youth Center works closely with Cedar Rapids Rotary West, Salvation Army, Olivet Mission, and countless others to purchase, organize and distribute nearly 2000 backpacks full of school supplies. This event is free and is open to the public.
