​The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network is holding a fundraiser called Lights of Hope. Each donation equals a Lights of Hope Luminary bag honoring or remembering loved ones who has been affected by cancer. We are expecting to bring 500+ bags with the names of cancer survivors, patients, and those who have lost their lives to cancer. ACS CAN volunteers will bring their bags and we would like to set them up on the Capitol steps. The bags will spell out the word 'HOPE'. A maximum of 10 volunteers will in attendance setting up the bags. The bags will be displayed for approximately one hour. (We normally bring the bags to D.C. but are staying in Iowa because of COVID-19 and travel restrictions). To recap: Max 10 volunteers, 500 luminary bags, on the Capitol steps between the West Mall and Buffalo Head Fountain. 1 hour to set up the bags, 1 hour display, 1 hour to take down the bags.
