Why will you see so many volunteers driving around the Quad-Cities delivering sandwiches on Thursday?

It’s all part of the twelfth annual “Safer Sacks” initiative by The Safer Foundation. Participating businesses and organizations have ordered sandwich lunches that volunteers will deliver to workplaces or diners will pick up for carry-out.
