Generous Community Helps EMS Fill the Rig for Giving Tuesday

December 16, 2020

Thanks to the generosity of the community, and especially the Ann C. Keyser Trust and The Rotary Club of Marshalltown, UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown tied a big bow on this year's Fill the Rig event.

With constraints in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fill the Rig was executed differently this year. No matter, as our ambulance crew took more than $3,200 in donated funds and purchased 360 toys, puzzles and other gifts for under-resourced children in the Marshalltown area. The number of gifts is about 50 more than last year's total and will be distributed as part of the Salvation Army's local toy drive.

Typically, the annual Fill the Rig event is stationed at a local store, where customers purchase an extra toy or gift and leave it with our EMS team members. This year, the Foundation at UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown encouraged online donations for Giving Tuesday, then ambulance team members filled a rig with toys purchased from the local Walmart and Theisen's stores.
