Rock Island – Christian Care is pleased to announce it has received a $1,000 grant from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) to help support its emergency feeding program. Funds will be used to help feed the hundreds of individuals who visit its Community Meal Site every year.
Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization operating two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men.

Breakfast is served at 6:30 a.m., lunch at 12:15 p.m., and dinner at 6:30 p.m. If you know of someone in need, call Christian Care's crisis hotline any hour of the day at (309) 788-2273 or visit online at christiancareqc.org.
