“To everyone at Sieda. Thank you for all you do for the people here in Wapello  County and surrounding areas. You are appreciated more than you know.”


“…wanted to say thank you (to FaDSS worker) again for setting this up for me. I was approved for $320 so it should get me through the rest of winter with saving me a few bucks. She (CAPS worker) also gave me a $50 gift card for Keith’s foods which will be very helpful as well. Thank you for all you do for my little family.”
