Rock Island, IL, September 24th – Chick-fil-A is hosting a spirit night that will benefit Christian Care on September 24, from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.. Bring in your spirit night invitation and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Christian Care to support the services that they offer to so many in the Quad Cities community.  Chick-fil-A is located at 2945 East 53 Davenport.  To get your invitation stop by Christian Care or call Lindsey at 309-786-5734.

Christian Care's services are available in the Quad Cities to a growing number of homeless men and abused women and children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through their two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—they provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to anyone in need. They serve homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and the mentally ill. Their vision is to transform the lives of those they serve by providing their residents with an opportunity to start a new, more
productive life.
