In August 2012, the City of Davenport announced the kickoff of the first ever Group Cares Home Repair Workcamp coming to Davenport during the summer of 2013. As many as 70 local residents will benefit from the work of a projected 400 adult and teenage volunteers at the Davenport Work Week, coming to Davenport the last week of June 2013.
