IHMVCU donates land to The Arc of the Quad Cities
People helping people – it’s the foundation of all credit unions and the cornerstone of IHMVCU’s mission to improve the financial well-being of our members, team members and the communities we serve. It’s with this idea in mind, that IHMVCU is pleased to announce the donation of roughly 10 acres of land located at 1801 Crosstown Avenue in Silvis to The Arc of the Quad Cities.

“It was the perfect storm,” said Rick Schloemer, I HMVCU Community Outreach Coordinator and Community Funding Committee Chair. “We had land looking for a new home and The Arc was looking for land for a new initiative.” 

The Arc’s goal with the land is to create a self-supporting social enterprise that will provide job opportunities and training for people with disabilities who are looking for job experience, specifically in agriculture and horticulture.

“This donation from IHMVCU is just the right catalyst to allow The Arc to support people with disabilities by expanding their potential through employment. This unique opportunity will   help us to build a new pathway to guide people with disabilities while they find success on their life journey, just like IHMVCU helps their members find success on their financial journeys” said Michael Glanz, The Arc of the Quad Cities Area Executive Director.

IHMVCU is proud to support local partners like The Arc to help create thriving communities and a stronger local economy, making the Quad Cities and surrounding area a great place to live, work and play.
