Winter is coming.  Nothing can stop it.  But some in the Quad Cities need help keeping themselves and their children warm.  That is why KWQC and Townsquare Media want you to help with Project Bundle Up.

You can make a difference

Last year KWQC's Project Bundle Up brought in 2000 winter clothing items and $1700 in monetary donations for the Salvation Army to help keep the children of the Quad Cities warm.

This year, you can stop by the KWQC studio on Friday, October 14 from 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

You'll simply drive up Brady Street and drive into the KWQC parking lot from Brady.  There a volunteer will meet you to take your items.  Then you simply drive through the parking lot and out the other side to exit on Perry Street.

What items should you bring to donate?

Donation items needed for children from infant to early teens include:

  • Winter coats
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Boots
  • Cash donations, which will enable The Salvation Army to shop for what is needed

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
