McCoy True Value
Indianola , IA
McCoy True Value Hardware has been serving the local community for over 130 years. Giving back to the community is just part of who we are as a Business. There have been many interesting events happening in the community and a movement towards updating the local downtown area. Jenn at McCoy's though a great way to jump start the transformation was to partner with the local Warren County Economic Development Office and True Value Manufacturing to offer a paint grant. Business can apply to receive 5 Gallons of paint for an interior or exterior project. So far they have awarded 26 of the 50 Gallons allocated for the cause. Projects have ranged from cheering up kids entrance to the local book store with a bright color picked by store patrons to updating building facades. I am always amazed at what a little bit of paint can do to freshen up a space! Also inspired by the little libraries the store is partnering with the Indianola Rotary Club to create a library which will include Do-It Your Self books and a place to find /recycle gently used tools. The library which will be installed this October will look like the famous Dr. Who Tardis because of its potential to be more than it appears. Giving back to our community is second nature because they are our friend and family.
