Held annually on the first Saturday in May (May 4th), Join Hands Day is a national volunteer day that specifically targets and develops relationships between young people and adults through neighborhood volunteering.

Youth and adults work together on an equal basis to plan, organize and implement the day's activities. Building relationships across generations restores confidence, trust and respect for each other and creates a sense of community.

The Casa annual Join Hands Day Celebration will be celebrated at three locations this year.

1. Casa de los Niños in Moline

2. Casa Children Garden at the Moline Riverside Gardens

3. Marquette Academy in Davenport, the newest addition to Casa commitment to education.


Please bring your family and friends and join Casa on May 4th from 9 am until noon and join hands in making our community stronger.

Please RSVP to Rosa Torres rtorres@casaqc.org or 309.736.7727 so we can have an accurate head count for planning purposes. Please let Rosa know the preferred site.
