Safer Foundation plans fundraising lunch: The Safer Foundation in Davenport seeks businesses and organizations to participate in its ninth annual “Safer Sacks” initiative.

To participate, each business designates a contact person who will act as point person for lunch orders on April 10. Lunch consists of a croissant sandwich with ham, turkey and cheese, chips, cookie and fruit. Cost is $5 per lunch if picked up at The Center, 1411 Brady St., or $6 if delivered. The deadline to place orders is March 28.

All money earned through this event goes to The Safer Foundation’s Employment Services and Youth Empowerment programs in Moline, Rock Island and Davenport.

For more than 40 years, The Safer Foundation’s mission has focused on reducing recidivism by supporting, through a full spectrum of services, the efforts of people with criminal records to become employed, law-abiding members of the community.
