Holly, like many others, saw a need for masks for healthcare workers and essential service personnel as supplies grew short during the COVID-19 pandemic. Holly said she has been blessed with the ability to sew and she is grateful to use this skill to help out in anyway she can. She has put in 57 hours making 61 face masks, most of them are the Olson Mask pattern.
She has given them to Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community, her Home Instead Senior Clients, her family and to a friend that's been making masks for Bremer County nurses. She also made 41+ mask extenders and has given the great majority of these mask extenders to Bartels employees!

Back Packin' The Dome: Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service 2022
On January 17, community leaders, students, youth, families, businesses, and more gathered together in the UNI-Dome to pack 47,808 bags of food for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. 1,000+ volunteers worked alongside each other in assembly lines making an impact!
Together our community came to one location to indirectly serve those impacted by food insecurity. This is what the Cedar Valley will be known for - the impact we make not only in one day, but in the daily lives of those in our community!
