QUAD CITIES, USA: On August 20, 2014, fifteen local John Deere Employees will have the opportunity to help brighten up a homeless shelter with a fresh coat of paint and a splash of color.

The Family Service Center is a 108-year-old building that requires a lot of maintenance. Over 100 people live here every day, and 55%-60% of them are children.

Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator, states “We do our best to make the surroundings at the shelter as beautiful as we can on a very limited budget. When a homeless family enters our shelter, we want them to know they are important to us and deserve to have nice surroundings during their fresh start.”

John Deere will supply the volunteers, Valspar provided the paint, and United Way manages the program.

The press is invited to share the experience with our volunteers on Wednesday.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 20, 2014

10:00am – 3:00pm

LOCATION: Family Service Center, 301 W. 6th

Street, Davenport, IA 52803
