Following a stint as a freelance reporter, she served as a public relations professional in the nonprofit sector working to enhance community service through storytelling and online engagement.

Operation: Rock Steady marches on as our team in Northwest Iowa mucks out flooded basements alongside volunteers from Nechama and AmeriCorps.


More volunteers are needed July 6-9 to complete several work orders in town. Members are encouraged to register their availability here (no further action is needed for those who already completed this form last week).

Preference will be given to volunteers within 350 miles of Rock Rapids who have completed ICS 100, 200, 700 and 800 and registered through Roll Call. Members, please consider the following commitment:

  • One work day or greater for local volunteers within 100 miles, but return¬†home in the evening if desired (mileage reimbursed for one round-trip only).
  • A minimum of two full work days or greater if travel is 100-200 miles.
  • A minimum of three full work days or greater if your travel is over 201-350 miles.

As always, do not self deploy.
