Each year, the Grinnell Sub-Chapter raises money to assist a local fire department. This year the Grinnell Sub-Chapter of the Iowa CPCU Society Chapter donated $712 to the Sully Volunteer Fire Department on October 27, 2017 to assist in purchasing a CPR mannequin. The money was raised by selling badges for a possibility of a day off through random draw.
