Iowa-based Title Company Partners with Food Bank, Salvation Army
January 21, 2014
Waterloo, Iowa-based Black Hawk County Abstract & Title once again partnered with two local charitable organizations to help make the Christmas season a little brighter for area families.
Andrew Nordstrom, an attorney at Black Hawk County Abstract & Title, said the company participated for the fifth consecutive year in two holiday programs coordinated by the local chapter of the Salvation Army. The “Toy Shoppe” program allows qualified families the chance to “shop” for toys donated by individuals and businesses at the local Salvation Army. The “Adopt-a-Family” program allows an organization to directly meet the needs of a specific family—both by providing food and by giving gifts. Each year, over 1,000 families seek help from our local chapter of the Salvation Army.
Black Hawk Abstract also donated to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank, a partnership that has now gone on for more than 20 years The Northeast Iowa Food Bank has made it their mission “to provide nutritious food and grocery products to nonprofit organizations and individuals in Northeast Iowa, while offering hunger education programs to the community and those in need.” Once again, the employees of Black Hawk Abstract jumped at the chance to help in these efforts by donating food items and money, Nordstrom said. In the past year, the Northeast Iowa Food Bank has helped 1,600-1,800 families with supplemental and emergency food assistance, and provided 34,000 individuals with food in Black Hawk County alone.
