Donation items needed for children from infant to early teens include:

  • Winter coats
  • Hats

  • Cash donations, which will enable The Salvation Army to shop for what is needed

Families needing children’s coats may apply by phone at 563-324-4808 in Scott County or 309-764-2811 in Rock Island County.

Last year’s drive brought in more than 1,500 clothing items and more than $5,000 in donations.
