Letter Carriers continue proud tradition of service to Quad Citians

Quad Cities, USA—On Saturday May 10th, members of the National Association of Letter Carriers from all across the country will be collecting sturdy bags of non-perishable food from front porches and mail boxes during the largest single day food drive in the world. In 2013, collections peaked over 74 million pounds. Locally, the haul was over 60,000lbs.

For 2014, the Quad City Federation of Labor, the United Way of the Quad Cities Area,  Loffredo Fresh Produce, Teamsters Local 371, Quad City letters carriers and postal workers, and countless volunteers will be working together to bring in a record haul of 100,000lbs of food. All of the food collected on Saturday will be donated to the River Bend Food Bank and subsequently distributed to thousands of families in need throughout the Quad Cities.

Congressman Dave Loebsack and Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba will be doing their part by joining with volunteers at the Downtown Davenport Post Office located at 933 W. 2nd St at 11:00am. Quad Citians are encouraged to follow in their example and volunteer a few hours of their time for this worthwhile cause, in addition to leaving a sturdy bag of non-perishable goods near their mailboxes on the morning of Saturday May 10th.

Anyone interested in volunteering can contact AFL-CIO Community Services Liaison, Joshua Schipp, at 309-738-6536. Volunteer information is listed below.

The Moline Public Library is pleased to present singer-songwriter Jake Bellows as he performs
music from his album New Ocean on Thursday, May 22 at 6:30 pm. This free performance is
sponsored by Friends of the Moline Public Library.
As frontman for Omaha-based indie band Neva Dinova, Jake Bellows has collaborated with
Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes, and has shared the stage with Stephen Malkmus, Rilo Kiley, and
Death Cab for Cutie. Paste Magazine praised New Ocean as a “screenshot of Bellows’ many
moods, made plain in equal measure by satisfyingly upbeat odes of longing, country-tinged
rockers, and pensive acoustic ballads.”
