North Scott Cares

Together we can make a big difference right here in our own backyard. Through North Scott Cares, individuals can give back to make an immediate impact on children and families.

Get Involved

NS Cares organizes initiatives almost exclusively on Facebook.

Blessing Boxes

Our Blessing Boxes are located in:

  • Eldridge - In front of Backwards Yoga on N. 2nd Street

  • Long Grove - In front of the Community Center on N. 1st Street

  • Parkview - Near corner of S. Parkview Drive & Crestview Drive

  • Princeton - In the parking lot of Zion Lutheran Church

  • McCausland - Near corner of 1st Street & S. Salina Street

  • Donahue - Near The Rusty Rooster on N. Main Street

  • Dixon - Near the basketball courts on Davenport Street

If you need assistance with food, help yourself! If you’re able to give, deposit non-perishable food items to any of the boxes anytime. To adopt a box for a month, visit our Blessing Box page.

  • In Schools

    When it comes to our kids, the little things are often the big things. Fuel for young minds busy at work, clean clothes, and tools that can help them manage big emotions. That’s where North Scott Cares comes in. Each month North Scott Cares will run a different drive through the Facebook group. Join us!

  • In the Community

    We rally support for children and families facing unique burdens. Do you know someone who could use extra support from our community? Nominate them for a North Scott Cares Call for Support. A Call for Support invites our Cares community to offer support based on the unique need of the child or family. 

  • Holidays

    North Scott Cares collects gifts for children around winter and spring holidays for those who otherwise may not receive the joy of opening gifts. Care members are able to "adopt" a child, sibling group or whole family. More information will be posted in the Facebook group in November and March.
