#ThankYouIowaCity campaign rewards do-gooders with prizes

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Next time you do a good deed in downtown Iowa City, you may win a prize.

The Iowa City Police Department and the Iowa City Downtown District are launching #ThankYouIowaCity.

The appreciation campaign is designed to thank people for doing everyday good things that help make the downtown area better.

When downtown beat cop Dave Schwindt sees people doing good deeds, he'll give them a card that can be redeemed at several Iowa City businesses, including Yotopia Frozen Yogurt, Molly's Cupcakes, The Java House, Iowa Book, Iowa City Transit and Iowa City Parking.

The idea of using #ThankYouIowaCity came up as a way to help spread the campaign through social media.
