Each year since 2006, the Davenport Community School District has worked in collaboration with surrounding districts in the Iowa and Illinois Quad Cities to collect donations of school supplies to ensure that our students most in need will have the tools they need to start their first day of school with confidence. The need for supplies continues to grow, so each year we’re grateful for the support from our communities and corporate partners. There are many ways to donate to Davenport Community Schools students. There are collection sites where you can drop off donations including our Achievement Service Center at 1606 Brady Street from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Other collection sites in Davenport include Ascentra Credit Union locations and two Ruhl & Ruhl REALTORS locations (4545 Welcome Way and 5403 Victoria Avenue Suite #100). Monetary donations are also accepted through the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend. Donations can be made by checks sent to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, 852 Middle Road, Suite 100, Bettendorf, IA 52722 (please write First Day Project, Davenport Schools in the memo line or you can make your donation online
