Family Museum plans

Veteran's Day project 

The Family Museum will hold a Veteran’s Day Project on Saturday, Nov. 9, to collect personal and household donations for local veterans. 

Patrons are asked to bring donations in from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to the Great Hall to support those who served and protected our country. Supporters also can craft a card to thank our heroes for their service.

All items will be donated to the Quad-Cities Veterans Outreach Center, which provides assistance with housing, employment, meals and more.

These items are needed:

  • Hygiene items: shampoo, deodorant, shaving cream, etc.
  • Paper goods: tissues, toilet paper, paper towels.
  • Kitchen items (foil, plastic baggies, cling wrap).
  • DVDs

All monies collected from the Family Museum’s Gravity Well during October also will be donated to the outreach center.

For more information, call 563-344-4106.
