March 2024 Best of All

Looking back on March and boy do we feel lucky! 🍀

Participant Best of All

This month we’re not highlighting just one person! We’re so proud of all the spring Prep & Achievers participants. They all gave their #bestofall each week. If you missed the 10-day blog series highlighting these programs and participants, be sure to go back and check them out.

Volunteer Spotlight

In addition to the participants giving their best of all, the leaders and assistants for the spring Prep & Achievers all deserve a round of applause. Without them and their dedication, we would not have been able to offer and hold these programs. You can see what they had to say about their time here by visiting the recap blog linked here.

Playhouse Inspiration

This year’s World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st was inspirational and amazing. We had our first partnership with Black Hawk College with activities taking place at both campuses and held a pizza party here at the Playhouse too! The celebration and awareness didn’t stop there though.

Every other post on social media seemed to be a different business, organization, or school celebrating and raising awareness by rocking their socks or wearing yellow and blue ribbons.

  • Vibrant Credit Union
  • The Group-OB/Gyn Specialists
  • Blackhawk Bank & Trust
  • Quad City Bank & Trust
  • Sweet Pea’s Therapy
  • Ascentra Credit Union
  • Genesis Pediatric Therapist
  • Davenport Police Department

That’s the shortlist. There were many others including local schools! If you or your company participated but you’re not listed, please know that we are thankful for your support it just means we maybe didn’t know or missed seeing your social posts. Thank YOU! The Quad Cities is truly a remarkable and supportive community.

If you visited the WQAD TV website on 3/21 you may have also seen the website takeover for WDSD.

Plus, we had 12 celebration/awareness kits go out into the community thanks to parents.

YOU can submit your Best of All stories and moments too!

These stories are typically chosen by staff but we’d love to hear from you too! If you see or hear something worth highlighting, please let us know!
