ITC Midwest has announced it is giving $50,000 in total to Marion and Hiawatha to aid their tree replanting efforts.
The company, with headquarters in Cedar Rapids, has committed $40,000 to Marion and $10,000 to Hiawatha to help replant the canopies that were lost in the 2020 derecho.
“We know firsthand the devastation sustained during the derecho, and we’re pleased to support tree replanting initiatives throughout our service territory,” ITC Midwest President Dusky Terry said.
In both cities, the funding will be used to buy new trees for derecho-damaged areas in public parks and recreational areas across the city.
In November, ITC Midwest gave $200,000 to the ReLeaf Program, a public-private partnership between nonprofit Trees Forever and the city of Cedar Rapids.
In 2020 and 2021, according to ITC Midwest, the company has provided $500,000 in funding to support COVID-19 pandemic and derecho disaster relief to various organizations throughout its service territory. Through its Charitable Giving Program, ITC Midwest supports organizations that make a positive social impact and improve the quality of life in the communities the company serves.
