Operation Overnight 2014
This morning four Cedar Rapids non-profits gathered together to see their organizations’ brand new websites. Area Substance Abuse Council, Children’s Theatre of Cedar Rapids ‘Playtime Poppy’, Corridor Running, and Feed Iowa First are all proud owners of new websites.
“We are honored to have worked with Geonetric on Operation Overnight,” says Lori Johnson, President of Children’s Theatre of Cedar Rapids ‘Playtime Poppy’. “Our new website will help us connect with our community and tell our story in new and better ways.”
The sites were built as part Geonetric’s third annual Operation Overnight which began on October 23, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. and concluded October 24, 2014 at 8:00 a.m.
During the 24-hour timeframe, Geonetric developers, designers and marketing strategists worked around the clock to deliver new websites to the non-profits selected without cost. Representatives from each of the non-profits also received writing for the web, Google Analytics and social media training.
“Every year I’m impressed with both the number of applicants and the number of Geonetric volunteers,” says Anne Ohrt, Operation Overnight committee chair and employee at Geonetric. “We’re truly doing something special here. We are able to touch lives through the websites that we build for these very deserving non-profits in our community.”
