Operation Give Birds is the flagship event of our organization and where it all started. The event provides Thanksgiving meals to families in need in our community. Meals contain a turkey, green beans, potatoes, stuffing, corn, rolls, and more for families to cook in their home. These meals typically feed 4 people.
In 2019, we were able to give away 545 meals and aim to increase that number in 2020 as we expand in our fourth year of the program.
The Iowa Giving Crew teamed with Tanager Place to to support those experiencing mental health issues after the August 10 derecho.
To support cleanup activities, the Iowa Giving Crew is offering a chainsaw checkout program through Do it Best Hardware.
For information on availability and to check out a chainsaw, contact Do it Best.
The Iowa Giving Crew funded the process to get the homeowner's responsibility covered (see graphic below) and fixed quickly. Price dedicated a team to get this accomplished.
Iowa Giving Crew decided early on in the pandemic we wanted to do something to help. We donated money to Olivet Neighborhood Mission, supplies to Willis Dady, as well as games, books, and flashcards to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Corridor. In addition to these steps we have already taken, we are looking at other ways we can make a positive impact on our community during this crisis. If you would like to help out, please donate money via venmo with a note "COVID-19 Response" and we will allocate 100% of those funds to our COVID-19 response.
Iowa Giving Crew received a donation from 100+ Who Care - Cedar Rapids Metro for a total of $8,900 in February 2020. The group identified IGC as their selected cause for the fourth quarter of 2019.
With the continued presence of the pandemic and the lingering effects of the derecho adversely affecting families in our community, the IGC has partnered with Waypoint, HACAP, and the United Way to provide families with assistance to meet their basic needs in this time of crisis.
