Kirkwood Community College Raises Awareness with 1100 Flags
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Kirkwood Community College is spreading awarness through numbers today.
1,100 white flags are out on the lawn, as part of the "1,100 Flags Project."

Organizers hope the sheer number of flags will make students take notice and provide those struggling with mental illness a chance to get help.
