Because of high demand, a Quad Cities church plans to open a second food pantry on Monday. Christ United Methodist Church has made free food available at its campus in East Moline for many years, and will now offer the same help from its campus in Silvis.
Leaders have been chosen for this year's campaign for the United Way of the Quad Cities. The co-chairs will be Mike Parejko, ceo of the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, and Bryan Dixon, ceo of R-K Dixon.
Plans for a new Interstate 74 bridge have been in the works for over a decade. And Monday, the Iowa and Illinois Departments of Transportation will hold a ground-breaking ceremony for the bridge that will connect Bettendorf and Moline.
