This GoFundMe campaign is for the Iowa Derecho Relief Center, and any donation will help make an impact. Please consider also giving to our GoFundMe campaigns for the Iowa Giving Crew, United Way of East Central Iowa, and Brucemore. Thanks in advance for your contribution to support these disaster relief & recovery efforts.
Started by volunteers within 48 hours of the storm, the Iowa Derecho Relief Center is a grass roots community group dedicated to helping those affected in the Cedar Rapids & surrounding areas by providing food and household supplies and delivering meals, and organizing groups of volunteers for tree removal, yard cleanup, and many other community needs. The center is operated in warehouse space donated by McGrath Auto at the site of their former dealership & shop on First Avenue. Donations help fund continued distribution of food and other essentials to anyone struggling with basic day-to-day needs. The group has just formed a non-profit organization named "Together We Achieve" to continue their work beyond the current center operations.
