ROCK ISLAND, IL – After nearly thirty-five years of excellent service to our community's seniors, Friendship Manor is urging their many friends, acquaintances, and neighbors throughout the Quad Cities to help them fulfill their mission, as they "go public" with their three-year strategic plan and $3 million capital campaign entitled "Pride of Friendship 2013."

Jeff Condit, Development Director at Friendship Manor states, "The seven projects of Pride of Friendship 2013 are aimed at keeping a jewel in Rock Island just that, despite the many formidable forces in the arena of senior health care and senior living. In 2012, Friendship Manor will provide over $1.2 million of charity care to our community's residents. This simply is not possible without the community's support, nor will it be possible in the future without the community's help."

Pride of Friendship 2013 is specifically targeting needed improvements to the property, and is providing increased services for Memory Care, Home Care, and Integrated Community Care. Ted Pappas Jr., CEO/President said, "We take great pride in the list of programs and services we offer our residents and our community. Friendship Manor has been an integral part of the Quad Cities for nearly thirty-five years and with the community's help, we envision a strong future serving seniors. Already, through Pride of Friendship 2013, we've re-invested $2 million in gifts to the campaign back into the Manor. We humbly encourage the community's help with a good push down the homeward side of our campaign."
