Extension supports volunteers in Mapleton

Mapleton, Iowa

In April, 60 percent of Mapleton was damaged by an EF-3 tornado. But thanks to the work of countless volunteers, “you don’t see that devastation anymore. You see a rebuilding or rebirth of this community,” said Monona County Sheriff Jeff Pratt. ISU Extension held a celebration to honor those volunteers and is offering them continuing support, including building their listening skills and their networks for information and referral. Watch a video from the celebration.
