For Your Safety & Ours…
During the COVID-19 social-distancing time, for your safety and ours, we encourage you to call with questions or needs rather than visiting the office if at all possible. Many of our services can be provided via phone conversation. Thank you!
Community Resources in Service to People, C.R.I.S.P., welcomes you to join us in our goal of helping families by supporting the five Strengthening Families Concepts. C.R.I.S.P. is here for KIDS and Families with KIDS. Find more details about us at Why C.R.I.S.P.?
Big Rack Brew Haus is participating in the 2021 Iowa Brewery Running Series with a Beer Run scheduled at their facility, located at 2475 Hiatt Apple Road, Winterset, on Saturday, May 1, 2021, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The run is a 5Kish gravel course that starts and ends at this awesome country taproom. All participants receive a free craft brew from Big Rack Brew Haus (or a non-alcoholic beverage for those under 21), your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series, and a chance to win some sweet door prizes!
The Iowa Brewery Running Series is all about being active, having fun and giving back to local communities. Since the inaugural event in 2012, the Brewery Running Series has donated over $200,000 back to local nonprofits. The Big Rack event will add to that tally by contributing a portion of the proceeds to Community Resources in Service to People (CRISP).
This is an untimed fun-run and all levels of walkers, runners and joggers are welcome. You must bring a valid ID or driver’s license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the event, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. Easton’s Food Truck will be on site for the event. This is an open course, meaning roads will not be closed. The Beer Run will respect all COVID-19 safety guidelines as outlined by the DCD and our local department of health. Masks are required at the taproom and social distancing and reduced contact at check in are encouraged. Registration is $30 for the event, $45 for event and t-shirt or $100, which includes everything in the $30 price and 100% of the profits going to CRISP. Registration is limited, so sign up today at breweryrunningseries.com/iowa. Registration is also available the day of the event. The event is rain or shine.
Mentor Iowa is looking for mentors to be paired up with youth who are being referred in the Madison County area. The mission of Mentor Iowa is to provide assistance to abused, neglected, and delinquent children who are under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court Services. We do this by working in partnership with the children, their families and the community. Trained volunteer mentors meet 6 hours a month with the child with whom they are matched and introduce positive new activities, new places, new ways of interacting and new study skills. In addition, Mentor Iowa plans regular group activities where mentors and children can interact in fun, age-appropriate settings.
If interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Marty Lester, Executive Director for Mentor Iowa at 515-277-9797 or email@example.com.

THANK YOU for your generous support!
