Success Stories

A Time For Giving  
December 2018


Mary Ann G. headed a campaign to give a family a very special Christmas. For over two months she asked coworkers to donate spare change toward her campaign. At the beginning of December she had collected a total of $610.10. This surpassed her expectations so she decided to help two families instead of just one. Mary Ann and her case manager, Pam, headed to Dubuque to shop for the families she chose to help. All the gifts were wrapped and given out before Christmas. We are proud of Mary Ann and all who gave just a little bit to make this Christmas special for two families.

Biking Across Illinois  
January 2019


Exercise is important to stay healthy and here at The Workshop we try to make exercise fun. In May of 2018 we decided to track our miles and see how far we can go. As of December 31st, 2018 Derrick is leading the pack biking 126.1 miles and is close to making it to Chicago! Once to Chicago we will head back to the Quad Cities and north to Galena. Way to go Derrick! Keep up the good work!
