Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – After four weeks of visiting with people all over Siouxland, Tuesday was the final Stuff the Stroller Drive of the year out at Hy-Vee on Hamilton Boulevard in Sioux City.

KCAU 9’s Stuff the Stroller partner Siouxland OBGYN joined us once again for another big shopping spree, this time with Dr. Melissa Holtz. And once again, so many people took time to grab a few extra baby items with their groceries, filling another six shopping carts with baby essentials for the Crittenton Center. Donations that will now help many families all over Siouxland.

“The Crittenton Center is all about children and families, we shelter children, we educate families, we work with the homeless, we have a child development center, we have a resource center, we have a shelter for children who don’t have anyplace to go,” Crittenton Center Executive Director Marian Burnette said.

Over the past century, the Crittenton Center has helped thousands of children and families in Siouxland. John Maule was one of those kids and Tuesday, he made the hour drive from Onawa to make a very special donation to the Crittenton Center during our final Stuff the Stroller drive.

“Because that’s where I was born not quite 70 years ago, so it means a lot to me, so that’s why we came up today, just for that. They’re helping a lot of people, and it’s just great, people like me, everyone else, it’s just neat. Anything they can do for these kids and these mothers are just wonderful,” Maule said.

His is just one of many stories that show how the Crittenton Center is making an impact all over Siouxland.

Thanks to everyone who has donated during the Stuff the Stroller drive, the Crittenton Center will continue supporting Siouxland kids and families.

If you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, Wednesday is your last chance to drop off donations at the KCAU 9 Studio or participating Hy-Vee stores.
