Reading the stories of people nominated for assistance in our 18th Wish List Quad-Cities campaign, one thing is clear: Many people in our community need a little help.
Through no fault of their own, simple needs aren't being met.
The mission of Wish List Quad-Cities is to grant as many wishes as possible with the help of our readers' generous cash donations.
Below you'll find select nominees through photos that take you into their joys and hardships. Click a photo to find out what you can do to help.
