Food drive event a success

I wanted to thank you personally the Times-Republican for assisting Iowa Hospice by Harden Healthcare in spreading the word about the Sept. 13 statewide food drive in Marshalltown. With your help, Iowa Hospice was able to raise 3,621 canned good donations for ISU and 4,254 for Iowa (and 237 from Cedar Falls residents rooting for UNI!), totaling in 8,112 donations statewide. In Marshalltown specifically, this amounted in 313 canned good donations for ISU and 263 for Iowa. In addition, we were also able to raise $1,589.89 ($300 in the Marshalltown area). These donations will help to keep many hungry individuals and families healthy and happy throughout Iowa. Thank you, again, for your participation in this endeavor-without community involvement this event could not be successful.
