Thanks to Birdies for Charity, people will soon have more places to park at Friendship Manor in Rock Island.
Development Director Jeff Condit says the nonprofit nursing home and retirement community has been growing, and its parking lot fills up quickly.
He says people donated nearly $250,000 to Friendship Manor through this year's Birdies for Charity campaign. A house on the site has already been torn down. And Condit hopes the new parking lot will be completed by November.
Friendship Manor also plans to renovate its entrance and reception area before December.
