New community learning series continues with event about health and wellness


The Quad Cities Community Foundation continues its new monthly learning series in June by introducing donors to the work of Two Rivers YMCA. The series was created to bring together donors, community members and Quad Citizens working at nonprofits that have received grant support—or hold Nonprofit Endowment Funds—at the Community Foundation.

“We know our donors are interested in the health and wellness of our community’s children, and we are proud to partner with Two Rivers YMCA so that donors can learn about their summer day camp program and the year-round Nourish Youth Nutrition Collaborative,” said Joscelyn Rowe, director of donor engagement and stewardship. “This is an opportunity for all of us to learn even more about an important effort in the Quad Cities.”

The event will begin with a tour at the new Spirit, Mind, and Body Center. Guests will learn about Nourish, a year-round collaborative that serves an average of 1,200 meals per day at 35 sites through Rock Island County. 117,000 meals were served from June 1 to December 31 last year.

Visitors will also learn about the day camp that serves over 700 kids every summer, providing opportunities to develop creative abilities, make friends, learn about nature, be active and healthy, and above all—have fun. The camp curriculum includes swim lessons, arts and humanities, character development, and health and fitness.

The new series from the Quad Cities Community Foundation kicked off in May with Hearing Voices, a simulation that replicated the type of auditory hallucinations associated with schizophrenia. It was presented in partnership with Vera French Community Mental Health Center.
