Driving the Community Forward

A sense of togetherness within the community is extremely important to us. We appreciate all of those within our community who strive to make it better each day. That's why the Fort Dodge family works hard to stay involved and show our appreciation for this wonderful community we get to call home!


WHEELS FOR WORK

Having the opportunity to help those in our community working hard is one of the biggest pleasures we have when we work with United Way of Greater Fort Dodge. Through the Wheels for Work program we are able to give a car to a family in need of proper transportation. Give us a call if you would like to donate or find out more about this amazing opportunity to help one another be the best we can be!


PROUDLY SUPPORTING LOCAL PD
 The great men and women at our local Fort Dodge Police Department are continuously working hard to do the best for our community. We proudly support their goal in making the community safer and to obtain more defibrillators and body cameras for the Department. 
It was a pleasure to help in this awesome initiative 


YOU'RE ALWAYS WELCOME ON THANKSGIVING
Every year it is our absolute honor and pleasure to host our Thanksgiving meal to any and everyone who may want to join. 2019 we had Iowa Central Community College Culinary Arts out to pack delicious meals to be served and delivered. Thanks to our many volunteers and sponsors - we were able to feed many wonderful people this year throughout the community!

This would not be possible without the help of the community alongside the students and faculty at Iowa Central Community College, including (but not limited to!), Community Orchard, Friendship Haven, Hy-Vee, Candies and More, Great Western Dining Services, Lynch Farms, Aramark, Noon Sertoma, Becker Florist and Great Western Bank. 

This is one of our most treasured traditions and we are honored to have had the opportunity to offer Thanksgiving Dinners for more than 10 years!

BIKES FOR TYKES
Bikes for Tykes is something everyone can get behind! Our very own Fort Dodge Firefighters and EMS donated 15 bikes this year (2019) and we are most grateful for their involvement in the community. We want to thank all who generously donated this year. You have helped us put together over 400 bikes this Christmas (2019) for donation to children in the community!

Without your efforts, these children would not know what it's like to have their very own bike. Looking forward to participating in this spectacular program again next year!

Embarking on it's 11th season, Big Country, this year the Fireball Run, America's largest active search for missing children, came to Fort Dodge! And that's not all.. Our very own Matt Johnson took on this fun adventure with Fort Dodge Mayor, Matt Bemrich!
