Freeedom Foundation

Tasked with a challenge, employees at Iowa Fluid Power know the meaning of success. The Veterans' Freedom Foundation provides financial assistance and other services to veterans.  It might just mean a cab ride to the hospital or sending a care package, but we feel fortunate to help provide any assistance needed to our veterans. Veterans’ Freedom Foundation bridges this gap.  If veterans face losing their homes or vehicles due to a missed payment, Veterans’ Freedom Foundation donates money to make the payment, buying time until full assistance arrives.

Our recent challenge at IFP was to collect donations to exceed our goal of buying and distributing 2200 lbs. of food. We did just that this week with over a ton of food going to this important charity.

Testimonials:
Without the Freedom Foundation I and my wife and child would be homeless. This is the second time they have been a tremendous help with funds, food,  and support. This foundation has plenty of resources to call upon. The people here have giant hearts and have the Vets interest in mind!!         
Thank you!
J.K.

Freedom Foundation,
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your assistance. From time to time there are Veterans like myself that fall short. I'm grateful that Veterans help Veterans. We look out for each other.
Richard M

In observance of Veteran's Day, the Veteran's working at the IFP corporate office will be distributing the food to those in need. To learn more about the Veteran's Freedom Foundation, visit:
