Check out what Rhonda Gleason in Creative Services was able to accomplish with the help of others in the agency as part of her Navigate challenge. Rhonda coordinated a food drive to benefit the House of Hope in Waterloo.

Get ready for the next team challenge getting kicked off soon! Sign-up for “Healthy U” is already underway and is bound to keep everyone on track with healthy eating and habits through the holiday season!
