In the past year we have been the organizers of the food pantry at North High School, brought food-filled backpacks to Eisenhower each week and provided a warm dinner meal at Zion Lutheran every other month. We provide 40-50 Thanksgiving food baskets to Cafe on Vine. A team of volunteers travels to our UCC Mission, Back Bay in Biloxi, MS each fall for a week. And at Christmas we send gifts to Green Grass Community on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. We have been a site for twice a year blood drives, cleaned the highway and participated in CROP Walk and Gay Pride.
Our building is always in use by the community, including Quad City Interfaith, AA and Al-anon. We have space and are open to other groups as well; reach out if you have a need for space!
In these Covid times, some of these Missions are on hold due to safety, but service continues. One of the ways we continue to support each other is through Meal Train. (www.mealtrain.com) When folks are sick, having a baby or going through a hard time, we like to support them with a meal or treats. If you are someone who would like to make a meal or send a meal from their favorite place, sign up below to be contacted when a need arises. Likewise, if you are in need, let us know that as well!
