Email announcement of BonaResponds Iowa trip

BonaResponds is going to Iowa and you can come!!!

BonaResponds is proud to announce a relief trip to
Iowa to help victims of the recent flooding. The trip
will be from July 7th or 8th (we will know by this
Thursday) to July 13th. We will be driving out (12 hours).
Thanks to a $500 donation and the generous use of
the University's vans, the cost of the trip will be
$100. This includes transportation and food (3 meals a
day) when working in Iowa. You can meet us there.
Ground transport can be arranged from Cedar Rapids'
Airport (CID).

We will be working in the Cedar Rapids area in
conjunction with Hands on Disaster Response ( and
with Randy’s Rangers. Work will include clean up
(mucking), gutting interiors, mold abatement, much much
more. While details are still being worked out, we
expect to be working out of Palo, Iowa at the start.
Sleeping arrangements are up in the air, but expect to need
a sleeping bag. There will be internet access at
least on a daily basis.

We already have two BonaResponders out there (Mike and
Tessa) working with HODR and they will be giving us
updates as to what to expect.

Reserve a spot as soon as possible. Like all
BonaResponds events, this is open to all. Alumni, faculty,
students, staff, and community members. Trip is open to
all over 18 (16 with parental supervision. (you will
need steel-toed boots, proof of insurance, an up to
