He noted that this year's TugFest theme is “Defending Our Eagle, a salute to our U.S. Military; the primary beneficiary is the Wounded Warrior Project. “Near the museum will also be Scott County's 'Freedom Rock' which will be one of 99 large boulders featuring a painted patriotic mural.” The museum is operated by volunteers, many of whom have also served in the armed forces, and understand the sacrifices made by families of those who serve.

Quad Cities, USA: The Salvation Army, Wal-Mart and Johannes Bus Service will host the Fourth Annual Stuff the Bus Event at all four Quad Cities area Wal-Marts.

DATE: Saturday, July 26, 2014

TIME: 10am – 5pm

PLACE: All four Quad Cities area Wal-Marts

Shoppers are encouraged to purchase school supplies and bring them to the school bus so that our community’s low-income, homeless, or needy children will be prepared on the first day of school. Items needed include backpacks, dry erase markers, loose-leaf paper, spiral notebooks, colored and regular pencils and pencil boxes, pocket folders, pens, crayons, glue sticks, tissues, scissors, erasers, washable markers, watercolor paints and hand sanitizer.

The First Day Project unites Quad City area school supply drives to meet the needs of students who require help in obtaining school supplies. Nearly 20,000 students in Quad City schools are from families with incomes low enough to be eligible for Free & reduced fee waivers for school meals and fees. Some of Quad City area schools have an average as high as 60% of students qualifying for Free & Reduced. The First Day Project will supply thousands of Quad City students with the items they need to start their school year with confidence.

Monetary contributions can also be sent to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, 852 Middle Road, Suite 100, Bettendorf, Iowa, 52722. Donate Online: Go to www.cfgrb.org and click on “donate now.” Donations can be designated to a particular school district if noted on the check.
