The Cedar Rapids Kernels announced 4,000 pounds of food was donated to the HACAP Food Reservoir by fans during the team’s last homestand. In a nice gesture, the Dale and Thomas Popcorn Company (who the field at Memorial Stadium is named after) donated 7,700 pounds of popcorn products.
The Kernels Prep Crew (hello, Sonya) passed a hat around Memorial Stadium each night during the last homestand and collected $6,500 for the Red Cross to assist with flood relief. Thank you, fans.
And the parent Los Angeles Angels still have yet to publicly acknowledge there has been a flood in a city they have been partnered with for 16 years. That’s embarrassing, Angels. Hopefully this lack of response has opened some eyes on the Kernels’ board of directors.
Also, recently talked with Cedar Rapids RoughRiders head coach Mark Carlson, who has been helping out with flood recovery. Most days during the past 2 weeks, Coach Carlson has driven around affected neighborhoods in town to help residences and businesses with whatever needs to be done. Coach says the other members of the RoughRiders front office also have been eager to help.
BTW, it appears the long-awaited sale of the club is close to being finalized.
