How you can help Quad Citizens struggling to get basic items this holiday

The United Way is collecting basic items for Quad Citizens in need.

According to the organization, one in three people in the area struggle to pay for their basic needs.

On Giving Tuesday, November 28th (which is a one day giving opportunity) the organization is looking to collect things like soap, shampoo and other hygiene products.

Even more than items, United Way leaders say they are looking for cash donations. Click here to donate online.

Item donations can be dropped off at Plumbers and Pipefitters in Rock Island.
Checks can be mailed to United Way, 852 Middle Road, Ste 401, IA 52722.
