Parkersburg & Other ISEA Members & Iowa Schools in Need of Colleague Assistance

Team ISEA,

ISEA has had requests for how best to help our members in local associations suffering damage from the devastating tornado hitting Parkersburg and other areas in Northeast Iowa.

Since it is difficult for ISEA to assess the needs of individual members and allocate any contributions in an equitable manner, I believe we can do the following: We can start a fund at ISEA, with ISEA making a contribution of $1000, and provide funds to the local associations impacted in July or August to make a distribution to members losing personal school items in either their homes or schools. Any individual members, local associations or staff may contribute to the fund. Lana is working on something in our electronic and print communications letting members know they may help this way.
