Children enjoying the sights and sounds of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train’s return to the Davenport riverfront in December and homeless children sheltered at Winnie’s Place will have a little something extra in their goodie bags this year, thanks to a generous $200 gift by the Junior Donations Committee of SSAB of Iowa, Inc.

Churches United of the Quad City Area gratefully acknowledges and accepts this contribution from our corporate partner in Muscatine.

In our 57th year of service to the community, Churches United of the Quad City Area offers free food to individuals and families at 24 neighborhood food pantries in our bi-state area. Dinner is served daily at one of our 3 hot meal sites. Women, with or without children, are sheltered at Winnie’s Place, the only emergency shelter in the Illinois Quad Cities for homeless women and children who may have survived domestic abuse.
