RuffaloCODY honored by the Iowa College Foundation (ICF)


Representatives from the Iowa College Foundation (ICF) were in the Cedar Rapids area on September 27 and 28 to honor two of its supporters for their contributions and commitment to private higher education in Iowa. Representatives of ICF member colleges presented 10 year plaques to Diamond V Mills, Inc. and RuffaloCODY.

Randy Ramlo, President and CEO of United Fire and Casualty Company serves as chairman for the annual area campaign. He joins other business leaders across Iowa who, as volunteers for ICF, help raise awareness and resources for private higher education in this area and around the state.

Now in its 60th year of service to its member institutions, the Iowa College Foundation is an association of the 23 independent colleges and universities in Iowa. ICF, whose member institutions enroll over 48,000 students annually, represents a united funds approach to financing independent higher education in Iowa. Last year, ICF raised more than $1.8 million from nearly 700 corporations, foundations and individuals. Most of the funds raised by ICF are distributed to students in the form of scholarships. Nationally, ICF ranks first in number of donors and second in the total gift income raised among 32 similar college foundations in the United States.

Habitat for Humanity House

Habitat for Humanity HouseRuffaloCODY Employees Donate a Day’s Work to Habitat for Humanity House in New Orleans

A dozen employees from RuffaloCODY’s MASTERS Program for On-campus Phonathon Management division traded their Blackberries and laptop computers for claw hammers and tape measures on January 18, when they donated a day’s labor to help build a Habitat for Humanity Home in hurricane and flood-ravaged New Orleans, LA.  According to Vice President of Operations Joe Marruchella, the work crew reported at 7:45 a.m. and helped measure and install siding on the Habitat house.  “It was a tough work day, but almost everyone was disappointed we couldn’t stay longer and finish the tasks we were doing at the end of the day,” said Marruchella, who estimated that the RuffaloCODY crew finished siding about 30% of the house with assistance from a team of students from Wellesley College.

“The entire RuffaloCODY group worked closely as a team, with all titles and ‘boss vs. staff’ work relationships put aside,” Marruchella added.  “Plus, no one was hurt, and everyone had a great time.”

Marruchella said the biggest challenge of the day for the intrepid group of office dwellers was trying to open the on-site storage trailer to put away their tools and equipment after the shift ended.  “After about 15 minutes of fighting with the trailer door, we finally got help with that task, and then it was smooth sailing,” he said.
