Non-Profit of the Year
ChildServe was named the 2017 Non-Profit of the Year by the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce. The award is given to a non-profit that is exceptional in their field and prioritizes giving back to the community.
“We are so honored to receive this important award,” says Marie Hassel, Director of ChildServe in Eastern Iowa. “It not only recognizes our dedication to helping children with special healthcare needs live a great life, but also acknowledges our commitment to the community in which we serve, live and work.”
ChildServe leaders and team members are highly engaged in their fields of expertise, advocacy for children with special healthcare needs, and many community-wide efforts to improve the health and well-being of children.
“Creating a culture of giving back is an important goal for ChildServe,” says Marie. “We know the best work comes from community collaboration and volunteering.”
Lloyd VanderKwaak, ChildServe President/CEO, is excited to see the newest location in the organization taking deep root in their community.
“Our team members in Iowa City have truly embraced our mission to help children live a great life, and this award demonstrates just how much energy and enthusiasm the ChildServe team in Iowa City is also bringing to the community. Their dedication will continue to make a positive impact for families in Eastern Iowa for years to come.”
