From May to December 2019, the KONE Center (Moline, IL) has held monthly events to raise money for three local charities. These events are successful thanks to the skills and dedication of KONE employees throughout the Moline, IL campus. Many of our employees devote their own time creating these charitable events.
KONE Center employees raised $14,100.00 in cash and an additional $3000 value in goods donated and hours volunteered for a total of $17,100! This year, KONE employees chose to support Toys for Tots, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Kings Harvest Homeless shelter and pet rescue.
All of the goods and money raised stays here locally in our community to help provide care and joy to those who may not otherwise receive it. Through the organizations KONE employees have elected to support they will help children, adults and even our four-legged friends.
Toys for Tots – The Toys for Tots program collects new unwrapped toys and distributes these toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.
Big Brothers Big Sisters – Creates one-to-one mentoring relationships between adult volunteers and children.
Kings Harvest – Serves the homeless and poor in the Davenport, IA area. Kings Harvest also serves our four-legged friends by operating a no-kill shelter for homeless pets.
