Harvest for Your Hospital

Beginning this fall, any bushels harvested (or in storage) are eligible to be donated to the Harvest for Your Hospital program. The gifts will help us reach the $2.6 million capital campaign goal to help build a new family medicine clinic and surgery center.  Gifting grain to the Floyd Valley Hospital Foundation is a creative way to provide farmers with tax benefits as well as impact the lives of local patients.

  • Farmers may avoid federal and state income taxes.
  • Farmers may also avoid paying self employment taxes.
  • The hospital retains 100% of the gift value.
  • Famers may deduct input costs.

To receive intended tax benefits and recognition for their gift, farmers need to talk with their tax advisor to make sure this type of donation is right for them.  Contact Chuck Jespersen (Foundation Manager) at the Floyd Valley Hospital Foundation at 712-546-3348 to take the next steps.   


By turning their bushels into charitable contributions, the land farmers have dedicated their entire lives to will help their hospital care for Plymouth County patients for generations to come.

Autism:  Helping Those on the Spectrum

According to Autism Speaks, autism affects 1 in 88 children, 1 in every 54 boys and the prevalence is growing.  Autism affects people in varying degrees and no two cases are the same.  Most will notice the social difficulties, the verbal and non-verbal communication awkwardness and perhaps the repetitive behaviors that led to an autism diagnosis.  Recognizing the signs, receiving  proper diagnosis and providing early interventions can greatly affect the outcome for those with autism.
Floyd Valley would like to invite you to join us in a community program entitled Autism:  Helping Those on the Spectrum on Wednesday, October 23rd from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. in the Floyd Valley Hospital Conference Center.  This panel presentation will be led by Josh Cobbs, President and Founder of the Pier Center for Autism in Sioux City; Jan Turbes,  Challenging Behavior / Autism Strategist with the Northwest AEA and Pier Center Board Member; and Dr. Jolene Meis, Pediatrician with Family Medicine Clinic - Le Mars.  After a brief introduction of how they work with persons with autism, the panel will answer questions from the attendees.
