Iowa Fertilizer Company and Employees Donate $10,000 to Food Pantries in Lee County and Des Moines County

December 17, 2018

WEVER, Iowa (December 17, 2018) – For the second consecutive year, Iowa Fertilizer Company and its employees are donating thousands of dollars to the St. Vincent’s De Paul Food Pantry in Burlington and the Lee County Food Pantry in Fort Madison.

Through employee donations and the company’s matching contribution, $10,000 will be split between the two organizations to help better ensure families in southeast Iowa have access to food and other supplies this holiday season.

“Iowa Fertilizer Company and our employees are committed to supporting organizations that are driving community improvement efforts throughout the region,” said Darrell Allman, Iowa Fertilizer Company’s Managing Director. “I would like to thank our team members for generously donating to the food pantries in Burlington and Fort Madison and encourage our entire community to continue supporting local charitable efforts that enhance the lives of those in need.”

To help raise money for the donation, Iowa Fertilizer Company employees worked with nearly 50 local vendors and contractors to secure items for a silent auction. A full list of employees who solicited items and the participating vendors is as follows:
