FORT MADISON – Fareway Stores, Inc. recently announced a second donation in the amount of $200,000 to the Iowa Association of Chambers of Commerce (IACC). The donation provided for up to $2,000 in gift cards to IACC chamber of commerce members in the communities Fareway serves.
The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce received $2,000 in gift cards, which were distributed to local small businesses and their employees.
“We are excited to continue our support of small businesses and their employees during this holiday season,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W.

“The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to once again have the ability to work with our local Fareway to distribute gift cards to more of our members! This year has been tough and being able to spread a little cheer with this program has been a blessing. We are so happy to be involved in this wonderful partnership,” said Savanna Collier, Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce Coordinator.
