QC Organizations Collect Donations for Flood Victims

Salvation Army

As the Mississippi River continues to rise, QC agencies are helping people displaced by flood water. 

The Scott County Emergency Management Agency and the Salvation Army are partnering to collect donations for flood victims. The organizations are asking for water, nonperishable food, new blankets and pillows, towels, and toiletries. 

Donations will be accepted Wednesday, May 1st through Friday, May 3rd between 10 am and 4 pm at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport.

I'm currently a Senior at Augustana College, working on majors in Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication and Communication Studies. In addition to interning at the station, I also work for the Augustana Observer, the college's official student newspaper, as a writer for the Arts and Entertainment section.
