Quad City Family Vows To Fill Local Pantries For All Of 2021
Mike, Amanda, Savannah, and Presley Roseman decided as a family that they will donate to the QCA's pantries weekly, for the remainder of 2021.
They've filled a different pantry each week. They've been focusing on "Little Free Pantry", which have locations next to Café Express Deli and outside of Vineyard Church, and they say the boxes are empty the next day.
The family has also linked up with Michael Stratford at The Sugar Shack on W. 4th Street in Davenport, which serves as a ministry to the local community.
The Roseman's said Stratford is looking for anything and everything he can to help out the homeless and those that need a little bit of help, and that they made a donation to The Sugar Shack on Saturday.
"Diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, sandwich bags, foil, toothpaste and toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, coloring book and crayons, construction paper...he accepts everything and anything," Amanda said. "I have four winter coats to drop off this weekend. Socks are the most needed item for people in shelters and the most under donated so I take packs of socks when I can. Underwear too!"
The Roseman's own and operate Leisure Lanes in Davenport, where they accept non-perishable and monetary donations for the pantries and The Sugar Shack. If you'd like to donate, they're open at 9am.
