LOCAL BUSINESSES DONATE FIFTY THOUSAND COVID-19 DISINFECTANT


Patrick Eads, Owner of Deery Brothers Ford Lincoln in Iowa City and Jake Neels, Owner of Dynamic Solutions in Iowa City, come together to help local police and fire departments safely disinfect vehicles.

In the face of a pandemic, health and hygiene are a priority to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

It began when Jake Neels was offering the EPA approved to kill COVID-19 disinfectant to dealers he was working with in the area at no charge.

Patrick Eads of Deery Brothers Ford in turn wanted to share the disinfectant with others. He decided to offer to clean all service customer vehicles with the product at no charge and has since began offering to clean any public service and health care employee’s vehicle at no charge as well. “When Jake offered the product to me, I wanted to share his gift of kindness with those who are putting their lives on the line helping others. It’s not much but I want to do whatever I can to help our community during this crisis.”

The two discussed ways to meet the needs of our local public workers who must continue to work despite the risk factors. Patrick and Jake are working together to provide enough of the disinfectant that will allow fifty thousand applications to emergency and other essential vehicles, including local police departments, fire departments, hospitals and city vehicles. Jake has been communicating with Iowa City, Johnson County, University Heights, North Liberty and Coralville Police Departments to provide the cleaning solution. Their efforts will help make sure all employees within these departments will start each day with a germ and virus-free environment.

Deery Brothers Ford Lincoln has been selling and servicing vehicles in Iowa City since July 1, 2010. Patrick Eads of Iowa City became the sole owner on January 1, 2016 after purchasing the dealership from the Deery Family.

Dynamic Solutions provides consulting services to dealerships in four states and has been doing business in Iowa City since 2009.
