Rock Island – For the entire month of July, 98.9 K-LOVE radio station will be honoring Christian Care by collecting paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and laundry detergent. All of these items are used daily by the residents of Christian Care and are in high demand. Helping to meet the basic needs of these residents will allow Christian Care to focus on the important task of transforming lives by allocating funds to implement individualized programs and life skills classes.

Donations may be taken to collection barrels that are conveniently in place at the local Chick-Fil-A's found at the South Park Mall in Moline, the North Park Mall in Davenport, and at 2945 E. 53rd Street, Davenport.

The Community Foundation and the United Way of the Quad Cities Area have enjoyed a cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship marked by very successful joint efforts including: the Community Vitality Scan and Snapshot, Achieve Quad Cities (www.achieveqc.org), and annual training for local non-profit board members.

The Community Foundation serves as a trustee of charitable trusts, manages an active charitable gift annuity program, and assists with donor stewardship. This expertise is fully available to organizations that commit to a 100% partnership to build  endowments.
