masks for meals

As a way to say “Thank you” to the incredible first responders in Rock Island, Two Rivers Church is
raising funds to give a free boxed lunch to the firefighters and EMTs at the 30 th Street First Station. The
lunches will also help support Cool Beanz, a local business that is suffering greatly during the shelter-in-
place.

The boxed lunches will come with a small note of thanks from the people of Two Rivers and a word of
encouragement from Pastor Robb. You can donate to this cause by sending a check to the church with
the note “Masks for Meals.”
Another way you can support the project is by making a mask and giving it to church. The masks we
have will be available for free for anyone who wants one. They are distributed at the Saturday Meal Site,
and pick-ups can be arranged at church during the week. The masks will be free to anyone who wants
one, but we will also ask for a suggested donation of $10, which will help buy a lunch for a first
responder.
Anyone can make these reusable cloth masks. The church also has sewing supplies and material that can
be used for this purpose. If you are already making masks, and are unsure of where to donate them,
please consider giving them to the church to support the Masks for Meals.
If the Masks For Meals program is a success, we will make multiple deliveries to the first station so as to
cover more workers. We will also consider expanding to the downtown station and Police Department.
