I was able to talk to Rene Gellerman from United Way Quad Cities about what they're doing to help our local area to help with the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Monday, they're launching a 24-hour giving event to support the community's response to the crisis and 100% of the contributions will support local organizations.


All contributions will support the Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund at the Quad Cities Community Foundation. The fund was activated three weeks ago with lead support from the Community Foundation, United Way of the Quad Cities, and Regional Development Authority.
