“Allied Insurance and its network of independent agents know that the road to recovery is a long one for Iowans affected by the tornadoes and floods earlier this year,” said Anthony Washington, Allied Insurance's Regional Vice President of the Des Moines Regional Office. “Even though the catastrophes happened months ago, we know that help and support is still needed to put communities back together and this is our way of continuing to support those efforts.”
