Community Service

CDI is proud to be part of a community – Owatonna and the world. 

Employees are encouraged to volunteer and support various non-profit, civic, youth, church and school organizations. 

We enjoy coming together and making a difference, like we have done in these people’s lives.

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a negative effect on local small businesses and sole proprietors, impacting their continuity of services and/or operations. There is a profound need for support to help these companies weather the economic storm. A small business support fund represents an added resource. The JumpStart Owatonna fund combines business and community resources as well as expertise to support small business in 3 ways: grant dollars, in kind donations and expertise, and local spending.
