Pulse Financial Services 2020 4th Quarter Sponsorship

Welcome to our Pulse Gives Back Sponsorship Page!

We are honored to share the story of PFS’ Clients Dana and Matt Melone of Cedar Rapids, IA.


On August 10, 2020 a Derecho hit Cedar Rapid, Iowa and the surrounding areas.  If you have never heard of a Derecho, then you are in good company.  Most Cedar Rapidians had never heard the term either.  A Derecho is an inland hurricane.

Our Derecho produced winds up to 180 miles an hour for almost 60 minutes.  The destruction that this brought to Cedar Rapids has been devastating.  Most homes and buildings in Cedar Rapids have some kind of damage.  This damage ranges from a few shingles on a roof missing to the entire destruction of homes and buildings. I myself lost my roof, my siding, a few windows, my shed, my fence, and the walls of my garage.

As a teacher in the community it was heartbreaking to be dealing with the stress of Covid 19 on the educational system and then have to deal with the added stress of the storm causing so much damage to my school building that we will not be able to be in our building until January.  Many of our students and their families were already struggling financially due to life circumstances and Covid. The Derecho only added to this problem and have produced more people in our community than ever before who are food insecure.

Kennedy High School wasted no time in coming to the aid of the community.  The Kennedy Food Pantry started immediately holding community open pantries and will continue to do so.  I am always proud to be a Kennedy Cougar Staff Member, but I am never more proud than when I see how we give back to our community.  Please consider donating to the Kennedy Food Pantry to help families in our community relieve the stress of food insecurity.
