The Blessing Box Drive-Up and Drop-Off - Jan. 20

By  | 

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - For the second straight year, TV6 is teaming up with Davenport P.U.N.C.H. (People Uniting Neighbors and Churches) to help fulfill a need in the community.

Organizers say there are a few organizations that make food available for those in need, but oftentimes, less fortunate families go without other necessities.

The community is invited to help by donating cleaning and hygiene products on Monday, Jan. 20, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The drive-up and drop-off event is taking place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the TV6 studios, 805 Brady Street in Davenport.

Last year TV6 viewers stocked the Blessing Box for nearly the entire year on this one donation drive alone. But now the supplies have nearly run out.

Some of the things we'll be accepting...

Lip Balm
Hair Brush/Combs
Paper Towels
Trash Bags
Toilet Paper
Air Freshener
Cleaners (Lysol, etc.)
Aluminum Foil
Wax Paper
Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Laundry Detergent
