Dear Local Unions:
The Quad City Federation of Labor and Child Abuse
Council are reaching out to you now because we need your
support more than ever to keep local children safe.
Thank you for your commitment to building a strong Quad
Cities and for your past support of our community’s youngest
and most vulnerable children. Due to the fiscal situation in the
state of Illinois the Child Abuse Council must raise $300,000 in
new and increased funds to ensure continued availability of
services in our community. This investment will allow the
Child Abuse Council to provide services and secure future
programming for vulnerable Quad City children.
We have a unique and exciting opportunity RIGHT NOW
to ensure these services continue and to make our investments
go further. Right now, Alcoa has agreed to match up to $10,000
any funds raised by our local unions in support of child abuse
prevention! They have agreed to this match of $5,000 this
calendar year and $5,000 in 2016. We would like to raise at
least $10,000 from our local unions by January 31, 2016 to
ensure these vulnerable families don’t experience any gaps or
delays in services they need and deserve.
We have attached an overview of this campaign and included
more information about the Child Abuse Council.
Checks may be written to the Child Abuse Council and will be
collected by the Quad City Federation of Labor for presentation
to the Child Abuse Council.
Thank you for believing EVERY CHILD DESERVES A
Child Abuse Council
