Rock Island – The Doris & Victor Day Foundation has awarded a $2,500 grant
for Christian Care’s Community Meal Site in Rock Island. “Christian Care greatly
appreciates the Doris & Victor Day Foundation for its support of our Community Meal
Site that serves thousands of homeless men, women and children every year,” said
Dr. Elaine Winter, the organization’s Executive Director. “Our Community Meal Site has
already served 15 percent more meals in 2012 than in 2011. Funding from the Doris &
Victor Day Foundation will positively impact Christian Care—as well as our community.”

Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization operating two facilities—a domestic
violence shelter for women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men. It
serves homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women
coming out of prison, and those with mental illnesses.

For all those who need a meal, Christian Care's Community Meal Site is located at its
Rescue Mission, 2209 3rd Avenue, Rock Island. It is open for breakfast, lunch and
dinner on weekdays Monday through Friday, and for breakfast and dinner on Saturday
and Sunday. 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 the Christian Care Crisis Hotline at any hour
of the day at (309) 788-2273 or visit online at
