Shopping for a Cause is an annual event held in the spring coordinated by April McQuade. For each event the vendor fees and proceeds are donated to a family in need within our community. This event will benefit the family of Ashley Plagman.
Saturday, November 28th, 2020 Ashley passed away unexpectedly at the age of 27 after suffering from a blood clot. She left behind her 3 year old son Keeegan, daughter Brayleigh, just 3 months old at the time, and boyfriend Jeff Haas. Since Ashley’s passing Jeff has taken on the role of single dad. Proceeds from this event will help cover the kid’s daily expenses.
The event will be held Saturday, March 13th from 10am-2pm at the Waukon Banquet Center. There will craft and vendors selling products with a portion of their sales being donated to the family. We will also have a free-will offering bake sale and a raffle.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month”
Helping Services for Youth & Families’ Domestic Abuse Resource Center (DARC) is hosting Domestic Violence Awareness during the month of October. In Iowa and around the world, October is a month to create awareness around domestic violence, using the color purple to symbolize the cause.
Throughout the month of October you will notice areas that highlight domestic violence awareness. We have a few ways you can support local survivors of domestic violence:
- Throughout the month of October, Pivo Brewery & Blepta Studios in Calmar will be donating 20% of their online sales to DARC.
- On Saturday, October 17, Luna Valley Farm in Decorah will be providing 20% of pizza sales to DARC. All pizza orders need to be made in advance.
Last year, the Helping Services’ DARC team of advocates and volunteers assisted 223 individual survivors of domestic abuse in the 7 counties the team serves (Allamakee, Bremer, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek). Staff and volunteers also answered 1,728 calls on our Resource Line and provided 88 transportation trips for clients. For more info about Helping Services’ DARC please call 800-383-2988 or visit www.helpingservices.org to access our chat option with an advocate.
