Mid-Sioux Opportunity Sees Increase In Demand For Assistance


(Le Mars) — We can all agree that the year 2020 was an unusual year,and during this time of year when our thoughts turn to giving of ourselves and of our resources to those people and organizations that are less fortunate. We have heard stories where the need is in greater demand this year, but what about this area of northwest Iowa? Dick Sievers serves as the executive director for Mid-Sioux Opportunity headquartered in Remsen. Mid-Sioux serves five different northwest Iowa counties. Sievers says he has seen a greater demand for their services than from past years.

Sievers believes as long as the pandemic is a problem, there will continue to be a need for the financial assistance services provided by Mid-Sioux Opportunity.

Last week, the Plymouth County Farm Bureau made a contribution of food, toys, and children’s clothing amounting to nearly $4500. The Mid-Sioux Opportunity official says his organization has been fortunate that donations have been steadily coming in, and they have been able to meet the increase demand for assistance services.

Sievers gives a rundown of the many services provided by Mid-Sioux Opportunity.

Mid-Sioux Opportunity offers services to Plymouth, Sioux, Lyon, Cherokee and Ida counties.
