QUAD CITIES, IL/IA February 11, 2013 – The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley has received a generous donation of a washer and dryer from Zeglin's Appliance in Davenport, IA and the Whirlpool Corporation.
This generous gift from Zeglin's Appliance and Whirpool supports the Boys and Girls Club commitment to providing education and job skills to our Club members through daily programs that support academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. This gift reduces administrative costs and enables dollars to impact direct programming for youth.
The gift is made possible by the generosity of Mr. Jeff Zeglin who believes strongly in the Boys and Girls Clubs mission. After negotiating a commitment from the Whirlpool Corporation on behalf of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley, Mr. Zeglin also generously donated the cost of delivery and installation for the washer and dryer.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley have been an integral part of the Quad Cities since 1994. Since that time, thousands of children, ages 6-18 have been served in Iowa and Illinois. Currently, over 200 youth attend one of the Boys and Girls Club locations daily. The newly renovated Teen Center located at 1122 5th Avenue in Moline, IL, is a significant capital investment in the Floreciente neighborhood and serves teens 13-18. Impact areas focused on at Club include: Academic Success; Good Character & Citizenship; and Healthy Lifestyles.
