The Iowa Derecho Storm Resource Facebook Page is working with the Iowa Giving Crew and Rock 108 to help people in need and collect donations. Iowa Giving Crew is a 501c3, if you’re in a position to donate contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you or someone you know has a power line disconnected from their house and can not afford the cost of connection The Iowa Giving Crew can help.
-Spots are available based on available funding into the program by donations.
-Homeowners are accepted on a first come, first serve basis
-You must be the homeowner
-We do not discriminate based on race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc.
-You must live in the Cedar Rapids/Marion area
-The area must be clear of trees/debris
-This is just the homeowner’s piece. Your power company will still need to attach the line and turn the power on

If approved, we will pay for the customer’s responsibility portion. We have worked out a plan with Price Electric in Robins to work with us and get this done quickly. Obviously power is a big issue for people. We have received a lot of monetary donations and want to get it in the hands of people to help ASAP.
