Melissa Steele’s day starts out with a long to-do-list.

“Yeah i just got downtown. I’m going to drop off the shoes at Marvin’s, meet Andrea, pick up a gift for Karen at Native American Gallery, and then I’m going to run to the grocery store,” she said as she’s driving to her next errand.

She and her two friends, Andrea Williams and Kelly Anderson, call themselves Go-fers. Need to run errands? Let these ladies GO-FER you!

Steele said, “I love to multi-task, it feels efficient and smart to me to be able to multi-task and get several things done at once.”

It all started when these three women thought about how they could help busy adults get their precious free time back.

Anderson explained, “I thought, ‘Well hey if I enjoy grocery shopping with my daughter, why not grocery shop for more people and just do it all for everybody?”

Along with giving you back some well-deserved free time, the Go-fers also want to give back to the environment.

Steele said she wants to “teach people and to go in and set it up for them get the proper bins to get it set up for them in their house so they can recycle as well.”

And when they say they’ll handle pretty much any task– they mean it!

Steele admitted, “I got called to resuce a swarm of honey bees.”

And Williams added, “And I have one that calls me to get black snakes out of her chicken house!”
