Dalton gives back to communities
22 FOR 22 IN 22
Did you know that on average, 22 veterans take their life each day due to mental health challenges?
That is why, as a Veteran-owned company, Dalton is saying THANK YOU this Veteran’s Day. Central and Eastern Iowa have the highest concentration of Veterans in the State, so we are giving back by donating $22,000 worth of improvements to 22 local Veteran Service Organizations in 2022. Dalton will evaluate each of the 22 organization’s electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs, then choose 3 winners to receive their needed upgrade.
Please join us in supporting those who fought for our freedom. Additional incentive for VSO's - 22% of any work they choose to do with Dalton from Nov. 11th and December 31st will be donated directly to Iowa Veterans Mental Health- 11% in Daltons' Name and 11% in the VSO's name.
