Iowa County gives back
|From helping an individual in need, or to help families during difficult times, Iowa County employees have found ways to make a difference for the communities they serve.|
In 2018, Iowa County Employees, and County Board members gave back volunteer services in the following ways. Earlier in the year, Iowa County participated in a money drive. Services and proceeds went to help balance negative school lunch accounts. The six area schools served were: Highland, Iowa-Grant, Pecatonica, Barneveld, Mineral Point, and Dodgeville.
In April, Iowa County employees participated in Road Side Clean Up and helped to stain a bridge and dock at Bloomfield Healthcare.
Employees and members also participated in the School Supply Drive. Through this, the Social Services Agency was able to give out school supplies for children in the district area.
In October, Iowa County also volunteered in the toiletry drive, and donated items to SWCAP for the Iowa County Food Pantry. For the holiday season, Iowa County donated toys and gift certificates to Social Services through the holiday.
The above are just a sample of ways that Iowa County can give back.
"If there are organizations out there looking for services on a volunteer basis, they can contact an Iowa County employee or board member," Iowa County Employee Relations Director Allison Leitzinger said. "It's employee ran, either volunteering their time or products, and letting people know we're looking to help."
"Our goal is to give back to the community," Leitzinger adds.
