Donations made through Oneota Community Food Co-op's "Round-Up at the Register" campaign in May--over $1,400--will be given to the Decorah UCC's "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" program.
Decorah UCC established the "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" program to assist immigrants and their families. The community effort is funded through individual donations, local congregations, and local organizations. Funds currently assist local families in need of items such as household supplies and beds as they establish new homes following release from ICE custody.
