Lamar Advertising Donates Billboards to Help Prevent Abuse

In an effort to help prevent abuse, Lamar Advertising of Cedar Rapids has teamed up with Preventing Abuse, an organization that is dedicated to helping protect women, children and families from abuse. Lamar has donated advertising space on over 15 Poster and Digital Billboard units in Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Cedar Falls to help raise awareness about the organization's upcoming conference.

After two high profile abductions occurred in Eastern Iowa within the past year, Lamar’s Sales Manager in Cedar Rapids was compelled to get involved in preventing abuse. Lamar donated over $10,000 of advertising space to support the Preventing Abuse organization. The billboards, which went up this month, include details about the Preventing Abuse Conference.
