Christian Care has been feeding the hungry for 95 years. Although the organization’s focus is primarily on the homeless and victims of domestic violence, the Christian Care Community Meal Site, located at the Rescue Mission, welcomes anyone in the community who is hungry. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on weekdays Monday through Friday and breakfast and dinner are served on Saturday and Sunday. Mealtimes are as follows: Breakfast is served at 7:30 AM, lunch at 12:15 PM, and dinner at 6:00 PM. The community relies on Christian Care not only to serve hot meals every day but also to provide a warming station for nonresident homeless individuals during the harsh, Quad City winter.

Every Thanksgiving, the Christian Care Rescue Mission serves an extra special feast “with all the trimmings” in addition to their regular daily meals. This Thanksgiving Day, from Noon to 2:00 PM, the Rescue Mission’s Chef, Kenny Anderson, will serve the traditional menu of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, green bean salad, corn casserole and rolls. Pies, cakes, and salads are still needed, as well as volunteers to help serve. If you are interested in donating or volunteering or if you would like more details, please call 309/786-5734 and ask for Chef Kenny.

Christian Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose vision is to transform lives. Through its mission of providing safe shelter, support and resources Christian Care empowers both the homeless and survivors of domestic violence to make positive changes in every aspect of their lives. Christian Care’s two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for women and children and a rescue mission for men—serve homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and those with mental illnesses. If you know someone in need, call the Christian Care Crisis Hotline at any hour of the day or night at (309) 788-2273.

Children are invited to Brucemore for a festive and memorable evening of holiday tradition—Santa, Snacks and Stories on Sunday, December 4 and Tuesday, December 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The mansion’s holiday décor and the estate’s seasonal spirit add to the evening’s activities. In the Visitor Center, children will be delighted by two new activities: sing-a-long caroling with Brucemore’s most famous resident, Leo the Lion, and a cookie decorating station. In the mansion, children will make reindeer hats, listen to a holiday story, and give Santa their wish-lists. In between activities, children and parents are invited to freely roam the mansion and ask any questions to the available stationary guides.

Admission is $7 per child and $5 per child of a Brucemore member. One adult is free per child admission; each additional adult is $5.  Space is limited. Call (319) 362-7375 for reservations.

" Poor Economics" ,
new highly relevant guide in a world where problems of inequality are becoming overriding, the book has the potential for the greatest impact as described by the judges who choose this book as
the 2011 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year.
Written by co-authors Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo, two MIT professors who are part of  a group known as Randomistas,
this book has stirred up controversy. Its evidence-based approach is being seen as a method to bridge the gap between the two sides of development over the value of  aid. Opening questions on how to measure the impacts of  interventions, the book provides a real basis for innovation in policy and innovation in government.
Copies of  news coverage and reviews will be available in addition to a few copies of the book.
November 10th. 2011
7.00 p.m.
Moline Commercial Club
1530 Fifth Ave.
beverages and light snacks are provided.
