DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - KWQC-TV6 partnered with the Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund to host a drive Thursday at the station to help victims of the building collapse rebuild now in the long term.

The drive, held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., took in $6,853 in donations, thanks to the generosity of the community.

The Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund provides support to nonprofit organizations meeting the needs of vulnerable people and communities in Scott and Rock Island Counties and ensures the area has the resources to address the community’s long-term recovery efforts after a disaster.

The fund also provides assistance in the weeks and months after a disaster, when attention turns from emergency response to community recovery. Donations are always accepted to the fund to support future disaster recovery efforts when they arise.
