Iowa City Errand-ers

The Iowa City Errand-ers is a recently organized group of students, parents, working people, and strangers ready to respond to the unique needs of the community as a result of the coronavirus. The group initially formed with the purpose to deliver food and run errands for individuals who are most at risk from the coronavirus. Shortly after launching, over 250 people signed up to help. Given the overwhelming interest, we’ve expanded our scope to assist the Iowa City community at large in a grassroots fashion. 

Rather than recreating the wheel, our hope is to connect with local organizations and learn what their needs are at this time and determine how we can help. We are open to anything. Whether it’s volunteering, gathering supplies, running errands, or sharing information, we are ready to mobilize a large number of people.

Our number one priority is maintaining the health and safety of the Iowa City community. We will be in communication with personnel from the College of Public Health, Johnson County Public Health, and other local experts to make sure we are taking all the necessary steps to do just that.

Right now, we are looking to raise initial funds to help with operational costs (gas, supplies, marketing material) as well has create a base for a budget to move forward with our "on the ground" help. None of these dollars are given to pay or compensate Errand-ers, rather help offset our initial spending.
