Q-C Jaycees donate to the community

Jaycees of the Quad-Cities became Santa’s helpers while "Shopping for a Cause" on Giving on Dec. 2, donating $8,650 to the area community.

More than 30 members assisted local agencies, including Family Resources, Humility of Mary Housing, Center for Active Seniors and Winne's Place, chosen based on their mission to support at-risk populations including teens, seniors and youth.

The Jaycees’ goal is to build personal and professional relationships by working together on projects to strengthen and grow the Quad-City community. The Q-C chapter is one of the oldest in the state of Iowa and has grown to include young professionals from both sides of the Mississippi River. They blend social opportunities with service, such as planning the annual Bridal Expo and Brew Ha Ha, that raise funds for charitable initiatives.
