Soifer Family McDonald’s has donated $50,000 to Waverly’s Cedar River Park Project.
The park is in the heart of Waverly and will house eight ball diamonds for youth of all abilities to play baseball and softball. Cedar River Park will also include accessible concessions and bathrooms, a bike path, and an inclusive playground structure. Fundraising for the project has reached over 84% of the $1.2 million dollar goal.
Owners Scott and Lisa Soifer recently presented a check to Waverly Mayor Adam Hoffman, Taskforce Chair Jeremy Langner, and Athletic Fields Maintenance Specialist Greg Westendorf.
In a statement, Scott Soifer said, “I know that restrooms and concessions stands are not the easiest to raise funds for, they don’t get people excited or emotional… but I also know that these are the details that will really complete the project and will allow the dream to come to life. We are thrilled that we are able to step up and help bring the fundraising closer to the finish line and we hope this donation will encourage others as well.”
Soifer Family McDonald’s operates 17 restaurants in northeast Iowa, reaching into the Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Charles City, Waverly, Independence, Oelwein, Iowa Falls, Evansdale, Hampton, Vinton, New Hampton, and Center Point communities.
