DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - KWQC TV6 is partnered with Davenport People Uniting Neighbors and Churches (P.U.N.C.H.) and Friends of Martin Luther King to host a Blessing Box drive on Martin Luther King Day from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the KWQC station, 805 Brady Street.

It was a great day with over 300 people donating supplies, stated event organizers. A large box truck was filled to the brim with cleaning supplies and taken to the Lincoln school to be stored and given out every Saturday at the JB Young Center, 1702 North Main Street, in Davenport from 8 to 9 a.m.
