Geonetric’s Operation Overnight Charity Event Accepting Applications

Linn and Johnson County nonprofit organizations can now apply to receive a new website through Geonetric’s annual Operation Overnight event.

Cedar Rapids, IA – May 24, 2019 – Geonetric, a digital agency and software developer for the healthcare industry, is kicking off its annual Operation Overnight by accepting applications from area nonprofit organizations in need of a new website or digital marketing services. The 2019 Operation Overnight event is set to take place October 17 and 18, 2019. Applications for participation in Operation Overnight are being accepted until June 21, 2019. New this year, Geonetric will be accepting applications from nonprofit organizations located in Johnson County, as well as Linn County.

“The kickoff for Operation Overnight is always an exciting time at Geonetric,” says Linda Barnes, CEO of Geonetric. “When we began this project in 2012 we had no idea how much it would grow, both in terms of importance to the community and to our own internal team. It’s an honor to see our developers, designers, writers, and strategists use our unique skills to help our local nonprofit organizations. We’re thrilled to expand the reach of this project to Johnson County this year, just another example of how Operation Overnight gets bigger and better every year.”

During Operation Overnight, Geonetric employees take a time out from building websites and online marketing solutions for healthcare organizations to spend 24 hours strategizing, coding, writing, and designing websites and other digital materials that help local nonprofits fulfill their missions in our community.

To date, Operation Overnight has built and launched websites for 34 area nonprofits, including Families Helping Families of Iowa, African American Museum of Iowa, Deafinitely Dogs!, Anna Purna Ghosh Foundation, and Feed Iowa First.

This unique event wouldn’t be possible without the help of local partners and sponsors. If your company is interested in sponsoring the 2019 Operation Overnight, please email
