Newton Culver’s and the Iowa Pork Producers raised money as well as awareness in October for the local breast cancer support group. Culver’s and Iowa Pork provided matching funds for the group’s work, and Carol Hopkey, the support group’s leader, said the funds will be used at Skiff Medical Center. Skiff has a new cancer treatment center and needs for funds to continue the ongoing improvement of the experience of cancer treatment.
