At the root of everything we do to move the region forward economically – grow businesses, create a quality place to live, prepare workers for the future – is the need for our region’s many organizations, businesses, cities, counties and townships to work together. Through Q2030 we are connected by a broader regional plan and many organizations are stepping up to advance the goals of Q2030 through community collaboration.
Last week Palmer College of Chiropractic donated the building 724 N. Harrison St. to the Scott County Family YMCA. It currently houses the Palmer YMCA Learning Center.
“Palmer has provided direct support to the important YMCA mission for years,” said Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., Palmer College chancellor and CEO. “We took this opportunity to support its efforts to provide high-quality, affordable child-care services to more families in downtown Davenport. This donation is in line with the regional vision of the Quad Cities Chamber through its Q2030 regional action plan. In order to achieve the goals of Q2030, Quad-City organizations will consider how they can collaborate in new ways.” Read more>
Earlier this month, The River Bend Foodbank was recognized with a Q2030 award for being a catalyst for positive change in our region through their commitment to the mission of making the Quad Cities a hunger-free community by embracing collaboration – a core tenant of Q2030 - to develop and implement a coordinated set of hunger-reduction strategies. Mike Miller, President & CEO of the River Bend Foodbank had these words to share during the Chamber's Annual Meeting.
