Sioux City's MyPillow store donated pillows to families in need. Good sales numbers at the store earlier this year will help hundreds of needy families. The store donated one pillow for each one sold since February, a total of more than 1,100 pillows. Center For Siouxland would like to thank MyPillow for their donation. The pillows will provide Bridges West Transitional Housing residents with a better night's sleep!

Are you looking for a great opportunity to have FUN and raise FUNds for Center For Siouxland?  Then you’ll want to volunteer to work a 6-hour shift for one (or more) of the summer concerts at the Hard Rock’s Battery Park and name Center For Siouxland as your charity of choice.  In exchange for your volunteerism, The Hard Rock will donate $60 to Center For Siouxland for each person who volunteers and names us as their charity, plus each volunteer will receive 2 free concert tickets to the show they are working or any future show. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Brandi at the Hard Rock (her information is below) and let her know which date you will be volunteering and that you are supporting Center For Siouxland.


Here’s the nitty gritty…

Dates Needed:

            Saturday 6/10 - Willie Nelson

            Friday 6/30 - Journey

            Saturday 7/22 - Country Festival Billy Currington & Chase Rice (all day event)

            Friday 7/28 - Bret Michaels

            Saturday 8/26 - Alanis Morissette

            Friday 9/1 - Five Finger Death Punch


Time Commitment:  a 6-hour shift (approximately 5 – 11pm) except for 7/22 which is an all day festival and will likely have 2 6-hour shifts.


# of Volunteers Needed: Anywhere from 30-50 people, but the more the merrier!  All volunteers must be 18+ years of age.


Volunteer Roles: Take tickets, put on wristbands, stock bars, empty trash, help direct people, etc. but could potentially help with bartending and stage setup/tear down if they have those skill sets


How to sign up?: Contact Brandi Redel, Director of Human Resources, via email ( or phone (712-226-7775 or 605-553-2111).  Give her your contact information, the shows you would like to work, and Center For Siouxland as your charity of choice.


Is there a deadline?: Yes. Except for Willie Nelson, please sign up at least 3 weeks prior to the show date so that jobs can be assigned and everyone is organized and well-informed.


What will Nonprofit receive?: The Hard Rock will pay $10 per volunteer hour worked, or $60 per volunteer for a 6-hour shift. If we get several volunteers for each show we could earn some sizable contributions! Very exciting!


What’s in it for you, the volunteer?: This part is the best… the Hard Rock will provide uniforms. Just wear your own khaki pants/shorts. They will also provide you with 2 tickets to the show they are working or any future show! (They can have some friends come see the show while they work OR they can go and bring a friend to a future show!)
