Chickasaw County Food Pantry

Posted: Mon, June 11, 2012

The Chickasaw County Food Pantry (New Hampton) would like to thank the community for the generous donations they receive.  "Compared to other food pantries, we are very fortunate for all the donations, food & monetary, we receive.  Some communities are not as fortunate," expressed Nancy Wegner, Food Pantry Coordinator.  The food pantry is open on Friday mornings from 8:45 am to 11:45 am.    

As fortunate as the New Hampton Food Pantry is, they are always looking for donations.  There are several items that they can always use.  They include:  sugar, flour, crackers, packaged cookies, coffee, hygiene products, paper products (toilet paper, paper towels & Kleenex), and laundry detergent.  They seem to always have a need for these products.  The food pantry also has 3 freezers so they do accept meat product such as 1 lb packages of hamburger & hot dogs.  

Of course monetary donations are always welcome as well.  We ask that you remember the food pantry when donating in 2012.  To donate, you can drop stuff off on Friday mornings during the time they are open, or donation items can be dropped off at our office and we will get them to the food pantry.

Advance Iowa To Offer Webinar Series on Succession Planning

Advance Iowa, a comprehensive consulting program for midsized companies, will host a monthly webinar series in 2018 on succession planning, beginning Feb. 22.

"We have found that business owners need information and resources about all aspects of succession planning," said Dan Beenken, director of Advance Iowa, which is based at the University of Northern Iowa. "We've assembled a full schedule of topics that will answer questions, and we plan to provide tools that help small and medium businesses start the succession planning process." Visit www.AdvanceIowa.com for more information on each webinar, find the link to sign up or learn more about succession planning. All webinars are scheduled from noon to 1 p.m.

Business Training Opportunity

Posted: Fri, February 2, 2018
Our Chickasaw County Business Community Sector Board has a goal to increase the skills of our local employees.  One of the ways to accomplish this is by offering local, high quality training.  NICC has developed a great opportunity for customer service, leadership, and team work trainings in Chickasaw County through a Business Sector Board Alliance.  The cost is $175 for two staff to attend five trainings at the Basic Level.  They also have an Executive Level training for $100 more, if you are interested.  In order to move this forward, we need at least eight businesses to commit to this training.  In order to do this the easiest way possible, we are asking those who are interested to fill out the following Chickasaw County Survey by February 9, 2018 by 5:00 pm.  Once they have gathered the results from the survey, NICC will then work with their trainers to get the course offerings scheduled.  They will aim to start in March of 2018.

Our goal is to assist in growing our local human capital and to provide high quality training that will meet our community's needs.  If you have any questions, please contact Megan at nheconomic12@gmail.com or 641-394-2437 or Holly O'Brien at obrienh@nicc.edu or 563-562-3263 ext 144.
