Jason Norton, senior vice president-marketing/business development, glimmering said “We’re just thrilled and amazed at the response.” Aside from financial support and cash donations, eight separate truckloads of food and supplies gathered at Rainbow Oil stations last week were scheduled to be distributed to the victims of the notorious dam flood on the Maquoketa River.
The flood was a result of the nonstop pouring of heavy rains in eastern Iowa prior to the dam burst brought on flooding in several river towns, which includes Jackson, Delaware, Jones Counties, and Dubuque.
All of the collected funds last week for the 2010 Flood Disaster Relief Fund were being collected at DuTrac branches and at the gas station chain under auspices of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque.
