    Please join the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, Moline Foundation, and Donors Forum for a training session and discussion on connecting advocacy to your mission! This training session will be a follow-up to the meeting we had in October around “Building a Stronger Illinois” and will help you learn more about the nuts and bolts of effective advocacy.

    Advocacy has a role in fulfilling the mission of nonprofits and making an impact in our communities. It can be connected to every organization’s mission, no matter the level of experience, no matter the size organization. Participants will leave the training with:

    • skills on how to leverage advocacy for their organization through well planned educational action
    • tools and actionable next steps to make their voices heard by their Illinois elected officials
    Please note that the training will be focused on Illinois advocacy and politics (though some of it will be general).

    NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley announces Board President, Max Ewalt, has stepped down as of June 10, 2014.  Max has served NAMI GMV as Board President for five years. He began work as President of the Board of Directors in 2009 when the organization was still named NAMI Scott County and has been instrumental in facilitating our merger with NAMI Rock Island County to become a NAMI of the Greater Mississippi Valley. NAMI GMV now serves the Iowa/Illinois Quad Cities and outlying areas, including Scott, Clinton, and Muscatine counties in Iowa and Rock Island, Mercer and Henry counties in Illinois.

    The Board of Directors and members of NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley expresses their sincere appreciation to Max for his 5 years of service, dedication, and leadership.

    NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley is proud to announce that Michael Freda, the former Vice President of the organization, has been confirmed as the new Board President of our local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  He has assumed these duties as of our annual meeting on June 10, 2014.

    Michael brings extensive experience and leadership to guide the organization forward into the future.

    Michael shares, “Over the next 2 years we hope to build a strong bi-state board, continue to expand NAMI's education and support programs into Rock Island and Muscatine, and increase our advocacy efforts by working with local service providers, our legislators and the Statewide affiliates.”

    Modern Woodmen sponsors second Mobile Food Pantry as part of the Knock Out Hunger Campaign 


    On Saturday, July 12 more than 60 Modern Woodmen of America employees and their family members will host a Mobile Food Pantry, organized by River Bend Foodbank. Mobile Food Pantries are scheduled in areas where the need for food assistance is the greatest. The volunteer event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Goose Creek Park (259 W. 61 Street, Davenport). Media coverage of the event is welcomed and appreciated.

    Each Mobile Food Pantry provides approximately 10,000 meals and feeds hundreds of families in the Quad City community. All food is distributed in a farmer's market style of distribution.

    “One Mobile Food Pantry distribution costs approximately $1,500 to $2,000 to hold, but that’s just operational expenses. That number doesn’t cover the cost of food, which has a retail value of $10,000 to $15,000. Our goal is to hold 50 Mobile Food Pantry distributions each year. To have Modern Woodmen sponsor this event and contribute to the cost of the food and operations means more families in the Quad Cities will have meals this summer,” said River Bend Foodbank marketing director Caren Laughlin.

    Modern Woodmen, a fraternal financial services organization based out of Rock Island, Illinois, will sponsor the Mobile Food pantry. Modern Woodmen employees will staff the event by unloading trucks, distributing food and offering assistance to load cars. This is the second Mobile Food Pantry sponsored by Modern Woodmen and is part of the summer-long campaign to Knock Out Hunger.


    Knock Out Hunger campaign

    This year, Modern Woodmen has selected River Bend Foodbank to support through its Knock Out Hunger campaign. Modern Woodmen employees and members will donate time, money and food to the food distribution center throughout the summer.

    There are multiple mobile food pantry events scheduled, backpack programs, a “Meals from the Heartland” packing event, and a communitywide 5k run/walk. Each event will support the food bank.

    River Bend Foodbank is the largest hunger relief organization in the Quad Cities and surrounding communities, distributing more than 8 million pounds of food annually to feed the hungry. The Foodbank serves more than 10,000 individuals every week through its distribution network of 300 charitable feeding programs in a 22-county service area in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois.

    Founded in 1883, Modern Woodmen of America touches lives and secures futures. The fraternal financial services organization offers financial services and fraternal member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States.

    For more information about Modern Woodmen Night or the effort to support River Bend Foodbank, contact Amber O’Brien at 309-793-5660 (office), 309-798-6704 (cell) or visit modern-woodmen.org.

    Thanksgiving in July to collect non-perishable food items to benefit three Bettendorf pantries

    Bettendorf, IA (June 16th, 2014) – Thanksgiving in July, a community-wide food drive seeks to collect non-perishable food items for three Bettendorf area pantries - the Bettendorf Community Center, First Baptist Church and St. James Food Pantry. The drive will be held Monday, July 14 through Saturday, July 19.

    “Food pantries spend up to $1,500 each month on purchasing perishable and non-perishable food items,” said Jeff Herzberg, Founding Member. “Our goal is to collect enough non-perishable food items to allow the pantries to use those funds for milk, eggs and other high protein, good-for-you products on a regular basis to their visitors.”

    • Items in demand include canned fruit, vegetables, meat (tuna, chicken, Spam), peanut butter, rice, pasta/pasta sauce, Macaroni & Cheese, juice boxes, boxed meals and soups.

    “While the beneficiaries of this year’s food drive are the citizens residing in the City of Bettendorf, we hope to expand our scope and help more pantries throughout the Quad-City area in the future,” said Herzberg.

    Ways the Bettendorf community can support Thanksgiving in July:

    • Businesses are encouraged to hold a non-perishable food drive.

    • Athletic clubs, dance troops and nonprofit or civic organizations can sponsor a food drive through ball games, dances, raffles or other community events

    • Individual donations can be made at Hy-Vee on Devils Glen or Fareway on Belmont, in Bettendorf.

    • Personal checks payable to “Thanksgiving in July” can be sent or delivered to, Thanksgiving in July – Bettendorf, Northwest Bank, 2550 Middle Rd. Bettendorf, IA 52722.

    Food items will be collected on Saturday, July 19 from 10 am to 2 pm at Faye’s Field parking lot – near the Family Museum, Bettendorf. Volunteers will load the food, weigh it and deliver items to the food pantries in the City of Bettendorf.

    About Thanksgiving in July


    Locally in Scott County, 19.6% or approximately 8000 children under the age of 18 are faced with food insecurity -- a need that's even greater during the summer months when children are out of school. Local food pantries see a significant amount of their contributions during the November and December months. Our local pantries have demand all year long and the summer months are an especially high period of demand for their services. Thanksgiving in July is an opportunity for the citizens of Bettendorf to provide support to the food pantries in Bettendorf.
