The Cedar Creek Mall has dedicated their Arts & Craft Fairs to supporting Blessings in a Backpack.

Blessings in a BackpackA local non-profit organization that aids qualified Wausau and DC Everest elementary-aged students with backpacks of appropriate foods for them to take home on the weekends to help the fight against child hunger in our community.

The Cedar Creek Mall is honored to have the support of all of their vendors starting with the Sept. 2015 Arts & Craft Show who have participated in supporting this great group! The Cedar Creek Mall Arts & Craft Fairs has raised $210.00 so far. We are hoping to reach $500.00 at the completion of the December Family Holiday Event on Dec. 5th & 6th.

The Cedar Creek Mall will be a Drop-off Site on Dec. 5th & 6th for anyone who wishes to donate food items to Blessings in a Backpack.
