DUBUQUE, Iowa (7/29/10)--DuTrac Community CU was one of the first organizations to step up and help area residents impacted by recent flooding in and along the Maquoketa River in northeast Iowa. Record flooding reached the river Monday, sending the river more than 11 feet above flood stage (wqad.com July 26). “After a site review of the Lake Delhi area and after conversations with local, regional and state relief organizations there is an incredible, broad-scale need for relief supplies to those affected by recent flooding,” said Jason Norton, DuTrac senior vice president, marketing and development. “Relief organizations are stating they simply don’t have the resources to respond to the growing flood damage need. “Therefore, DuTrac wanted to be first out of the door to help provide a cash donation and challenge other area residents and businesses to donate to those in need,” he added. DuTrac presented a check for $500 to the Trucks of Love program sponsored jointly by Rainbow Oil--the parent company of the Kwik Stop convenience stores--Cumulus Radio, Queen B Radio and Radio Dubuque Residents and businesses are being encouraged to take household items, cleaning products, diapers and other much needed supplies to any Kwik Stop location where semi tractor trailers--Trucks of Love--and volunteers are on hand to accept in-kind and cash donations. DuTrac is offering its members impacted by flooding a Water Damage Loan Program--a personal loan offered at a reduced rate. DuTrac, based in Dubuque, Iowa, has $465 million in assets.
