The City of Davenport is requiring a $57,000 new fire sprinkler system for King’s Harvest Ministries.  King’s Harvest will need to raise the money for the new system or shut their doors. So King’s Harvest is starting a Capital Campaign called Saving King’s Harvest to raise the money. King’s Harvest serves the poor and homeless in the Quad Cities and is located at 824 W. 3rd Street in downtown Davenport.

Anne McVey, Fundraising Coordinator for King’s Harvest, stated “King’s Harvest is planning several special event fundraisers throughout the summer and early fall”. She feels this should be a community wide effort. “It would be a sad day if King’s Harvest was gone and could not help all the poor and less fortunate in our community, especially our new Shelter for Homeless Mothers with Children. Where will they go? I’ve seen the homeless children, will they go back into tents and cars?”.

The first big fundraiser is scheduled for June 16th at the Brady Street Stadium. The Wolfpack Semi-pro football team has their first game and King’s Harvest is their charity of choice. Just attending the football game with friends or family can help save King’s  Harvest. King’s Harvest will be receiving a portion of each ticket sold.
