Davenport, Iowa – HAVlife Hands: a community effort to prevent lost potential will run October 13 through the end of November. Thirteen local businesses will have $1 and $5 HAVlife Hands for donation, proceeds to benefit the HAVlife Foundation.
"This idea of lost potential is something that really resonates with this community," said founder Mike Vondran. "No one wants to think about a student not being able to play football because his family can't afford the fee for camp, or the child who can't learn how to play the flute because there isn't money to rent an instrument."
HAVlife Hands is a community effort to prevent lost potential by giving youth opportunities in arts, athletics and music. Supporting businesses include: TAG Communications, Davenport United Insurance & Investments, Bettendorf Kennedy Chiropractic , Moline Barrel House, Davenport Van's Pizza, Pub and Grill, Davenport Taco Bell Locations, Davenport / Rock Island WHBF CBS 4, Rocks Island Rookies Sports Bar, Davenport
HAVlife Foundation welcomes additional local business supporters, to get involved with HAVlife Hands please contact, HAVlife Advocate, Natalie Johansen Murray at natalie@havlifefoundation.org.
HAVlife was established in 2007 in honor of Hunter Aaron Vondran, who passed away at the young age of 13 due to injuries sustained in a tragic accident. The organization serves to prevent lost potential of youth through sponsoring participation scholarships in the areas of music, arts and athletic programs for at-risk youth in the schools and community. To date the foundation has raised and granted over $250,000 locally. For more information visit www.havlife.org
