Cedar-Rapids-Flood

June 13th 2008 marked an historical…and devastating….day in Involta headquarter’s hometown. It’s the day the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, IA crested to its highest level ever: 31.12 feet. The flood waters engulfed 10 square miles (14%) of the city. This monumental flood impacted more than 5,000 homes, dislocated 18,000 residents and damaged more than 300 city facilities.

Today, we would like to remember and recognize all the Involta employees, families and friends who “rose” to the occasion and helped the city and Involta clients maintain business as usual in spite of the flooding. Thank you to those who ran the stairs, sandbagged, waded in the water, continuously replenished supplies, carried gas cans, worked through the night, changed hoses, ran extension cords and poured their sweat, heart and soul into saving critical aspects of our clients’ businesses.

Involta employees continue to be “People Who Deliver” ….and people we are proud of. Through the company’s “Involta Gives Back” program, employees have volunteered hundreds of hours of personal time towards various community activities and charitable support and sit on the boards of local nonprofit organizations.
