Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way Wins Award
The University of Iowa College of Public Health and its Business Leadership Network announced seven award recipients under the fourth annual round of the Community Grant Program.
The grant program funds, in conjunction with an equal cash match from other organizations or businesses, will be used for public health-related initiatives and projects in the recipient communities.
The Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way will provide beds and cribs for children living in poverty in Fort Dodge. Good sleep is critical for a child's health, well-being, and ability to learn. A partnership with local schools, health care providers, the Webster County Health Department and nonprofits will help identify children who need beds.
