Through our Get10Give10 program, a few times a year, we will randomly select a customer who has opted in to receive SMS text messages from us to win $10,000 for themselves and also donate an additional $10,000 to a nonprofit of their choice. Mark L. from Iowa is our second winner of 2021! His $10,000 nonprofit donation went to the Iowa Veterans Home.
About the Iowa Veterans Home
This nonprofit provides a continuum of care to Iowa’s veterans and their spouses on both a residential and nursing level. It is one of the largest State Veterans Homes in the nation. The Iowa Veterans Home provide a huge array of services to veterans, from recreational therapy, social work, mental health services, speech therapy, x-rays, and much more.
They’ve had a difficult year due to Covid restrictions and have had to find new ways to serve their residents. The staff is excited that everything is starting to open back up, so residents are able to see their families again and enjoy their usual activities. This also means they’ll be able to reopen their library, chapel, ceramics center, courtyard, and putting green. Residents will soon be able to take full advantage of the recreational department again where entertainment is brought into the facilities, and residents can also go on outings like baseball games, fishing, and the state fair.
As for Mark’s $10,000 donation, they don’t have any exact plans for it yet. They were planning to reach out to Mark and see what he is passionate about and use it toward something he’s interested in. They have endless ideas for areas this donation could help!
