How to help tenants from "The Davenport" apartment building
The Red Cross is coordinating efforts to help tenants displaced by the collapse of "The Davenport" apartments on Sunday.
Tonight and Wednesday morning, volunteers will continue to serve residents at a Red Cross shelter at CASI, the Center for Active Seniors at 1035 West Kimberly Road. Then Wednesday at noon, the Red Cross will move the shelter location to 1111 West Kimberly Road in Davenport. And the agency will use the Marquette Street entrance of the former Select Specialty Hospital building.
Meals, medical and mental health services, one-on-one support, and phone-charging stations are available and will continue to be available at the Red Cross shelter. Donations are being accepted by phone at 1.800.RedCross (or 1 (800) 733-2767). That's also the Red Cross, 24-7 support line for those who need help.
The Salvation Army is accepting donations of clothing, household items, and other supplies at 4001 North Brady Street. The local offices of the Salvation Army are located at 100 Kirkwopd Blvd., Davenport, IA 52803. And the phone number is 1 (563) 324-4808.
And the Quad Cities Community Foundation is accepting money to support the displaced tenants and local non-profits who are serving them. Donate online HERE. Individuals and households must be registered with the Red Cross to receive direct financial assistance through the community foundation.
The Quad City Times also reports six cats, two snakes, and a lizard have been rescued from the Davenport apartments. The Humane Society of Scott County says its staff helped the fire department find and rescue the pets this afternoon (Tuesday).
