 Want to make a difference but still not sure how? Here are some ideas you could try!

Call us today at 319-362-2214 and ask to learn more about volunteering or giving through Matthew 25.

You could become a Book Buddy, help a child become a better reader, and positively impact the rest of her life.

You could help fund Groundswell, quite possibly the coolest youth arts venue in the state.

You could help staff an event at Groundswell.  We could always use an extra pair of hands.

You could garden with children, teaching them in fun ways how to live well.  (Did you know that over 50% of the fifth-graders in core west-side neighborhoods are overweight due to poor nutrition?)

You could bring a team for Neighborhood Building work: repair a family’s home or rehab a house to create more affordable homes.

You could join the Tool Library, get access to more quality tools than you can keep in your garage, and help provide affordable access to tools for lower-income homeowners, helping them maintain their most significant investment.

You could volunteer to work on our urban farm or buy a CSA share to help create a healthier food culture in core neighborhoods.
