Cedar Rapids Community School District’s Transportation Department is working with Alliant Energy to deliver meals to lineworkers after the Monday, Aug. 10 derecho storm.
On Friday, Aug. 21, 800 lunches were delivered across Linn County. The Transportation Department is delivering three meals a day.
Not only are transportation employees delivering meals, but they also helped Alliant Energy prepare sleeping accommodations at Prairie High School for out-of-state linemen. Additionally, transportation employees moved some displaced families to temporary accommodations.
Cedar Rapids Community School District is grateful for the work that Alliant Energy is doing to restore power.
Margaret Kenney, a transportation employee for the school district, has delivered meals since Tuesday, Aug. 18. “The lineworkers are grateful that I bring the meals, but I’m grateful to them for being out there restoring our power.”
