Waterloo, Iowa - The Waterloo Bucks have released their inaugural Community Report showcasing how the organization supported the Cedar Valley in 2018.
The 12-page report highlights the work inside and outside of Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium throughout the calendar year. Through the "Our Bucks" community program, the Bucks raised over $13,500 in charitable donations including both in-stadium and in-kind donations. Other community efforts saw the Bucks collecting over 3,300 pounds of food for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank through the inaugural year of the Step Up to the Plates initiative. This was the third year of the Bucks Summer Reading Program which promoted the importance of reading to 38 elementary schools in Eastern Iowa. The Catch With A Cop and the Share The Glove program were two new initiatives started by the Bucks in 2018.

All Bucks home games are played at Cost Cutters Field at Riverfront Stadium which will host the 2019 Northwoods League All-Star Game. The ballpark welcomed a new state of the art video board in 2016 thanks to a matching grant from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association. Team ownership has invested more than $250,000 in improvements since the end of the 2014 season including painted bleachers, public Wi-Fi, sound system, group outing areas, kids zone inflatables, and concessions equipment. Fans are encouraged to stay in touch with the Bucks by utilizing their website at www.waterloobucks.com or utilizing the Northwoods League Mobile App.
