Rock Island, IL – The Scott County Regional Authority (SCRA) has awarded Christian Care with a $6,100 grant, which will provide for new shelves in a food pantry at the domestic violence shelter, and new kitchen ware for its homeless rescue mission.

Christian Care is transforming the lives of homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and those with mental illness. Its two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to those in need. Its services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the goal of nourishing the bodies, minds, hearts and souls of the men, women and children who come seeking a new way of life. If you know someone in need, call the Christian Care crisis hotline any hour of the day or night at (309) 788-2273.

Bucktown Wine Walk May 30th Supports National Alliance on Mental Illness

DAVENPORT, Iowa (May 16, 2014) – The artists of Bucktown Center for the Arts will host a Final Friday Wine Walk Friday May 30, 2014, from 6 to 9 p.m. at 225 East Second Street, Davenport. Guests may purchase a hand-painted wine glass for $20, which entitles them to a wine tasting featuring five featured wines and light snacks. Musicians Donnie Schold and Alicia Whitfield will perform. RSVPs are welcome at: www.facebook.com/bucktownarts/events.

Participating galleries will donate a percentage of their sales during the Wine Walk to sponsor NAMIWalk 2014, a signature fundraising event for the National Alliance on Mental Illness Greater Mississippi Valley. This 34-year old affiliate of the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization provides free education and support programs locally to individuals and families living with mental illness. NAMI’s efforts complement the work of mental health professionals by helping families and caregivers provide a strong support network to individuals living with mental illness.

“This is a great way for Bucktown to celebrate May as Mental Health Awareness Month and to kick off the NAMIWalk fundraising season,” says Pat Bereskin, an art educator and owner of Atom studio + gallery at Bucktown. “We are partnering with this organization because, as artists, we’ve witnessed the positive benefits of art therapy for persons recovering from mental illness. In fact, I’m working with returning veterans who have PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health issues in an art class.”

NAMIWalk 2014 is scheduled for September 13 at Centennial Park in Davenport. For further information on NAMIWalk, please visit www.namiwalks.org/greatermississippivalley.
