On December 7th, Brad and Trudi Connors along with the iWealth team presented a check to the Waseca Area Neighborhood Service Center, for the money raised during the iWealth 2022 Holiday Food Drive. Community donations totaled $6,365 and combined with the $3,000 donation from the iWealth Foundation, the total amount raised was $9,365.
The funds raised will be used to provide Christmas meals for over 229 local area families. Food baskets will be packed Dec. 16th by Waseca High School students and other volunteers and will be distributed Dec. 17th with help from Scouts BSA Troop 85. Excess funds will be used to help support the WANSC Backpack Program. The Backpack Program provides meals to over 150 local children each week.
More than 71 families and business donated to the drive this year. This is the thirteenth consecutive year iWealth has sponsored the Holiday Food Drive, gathering donations of more than $105,981 throughout the years.
