An Evening of Service at Northeast Iowa Food Bank

The DISTek crew anxious to get started!

A month or so ago an employee reached out to me asking about information regarding arranging a group volunteer event at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. We’ve done such volunteer events at our local food bank as a group several times in the past, but it had been awhile since we’ve been back to help out.

Giving Back: DISTek Casual for a Cause

Not only does this provide a larger monetary donation to the worthy cause, but creates broader exposure for the cause as we internally promote it for the entire month. As an added bonus, this year we were able to secure some matching funds from the DISTek budget, further increasing the monetary donation each month and expanding on one of our core values - community.
