How you can help recovery efforts in the Quad Cities
This spring, the Mississippi River rose to levels above its banks that we have not seen in the Quad Cities for decades. And as it did, Quad Citizens sprang into action to rescue people, to save businesses, and provide housing for displaced neighbors and friends.
At the Quad Cities Community Foundation, we have been actively reaching out to our partners. Organizations directly impacted by the flooding can let us know what help they need by calling us at (563) 326-2840. We will continue to find ways to support our beautiful community as we work to recover in the long-term. We invite you to follow our Facebook page and website for updates.
