Moline Rotary’s “Suits from Suits” program provides swimsuits and swim lessons for children in the Quad-Cities. Moline Rotary and the Moline Foundation are working together to provide swim lessons for more than 130 immigrant children and their families through World Relief. With a combined grant of $3,500, children will receive free instruction in water safety as well as swimming lessons at Two Rivers YMCA, Moline.
Club members also donated more than 80 swimsuits for children participating in the swim program.
“It is heartwarming to know that so many children will learn a lifelong skill at our local Y. We also know it is important for immigrant families to learn about water safety, as we live as neighbors along the Mississippi and Rock rivers,” said Joy Boruff, executive director of The Moline Foundation.
