Preventing Child Abuse is the responsiblity of our entire community. Together, we can make a difference to keep children safe and build strong families. 




Lifesaver Canister Day is the Child Abuse Council’s largest public fundraiser where volunteers will be out in force at local retail and grocery stores in the Quad Cities to raise awareness and funds for the Child Abuse Council’s programs and services. This year the event will be held on Friday, April 20th 8:30-4:00


Below is some more information on ways you can be part of the Annual Lifesaver Campaign to eliminate child abuse and neglect! You can also download an FAQ sheet here as well. 


How can I help on Lifesaver Canister Day?

You can help by sponsoring this yearly event to both raise awareness of child abuse prevention and to leverage more support in our community to keep children safe!  You can also help by volunteering for a two hours shift of adopting an entire site as a Team Captain.


What are the responsibilities of a Team Captain?

The primary responsibility of a Team Captain is to recruit 1-2 volunteers for each 2-hour shift for your site (total of approximately 8 volunteers).  Some locations have 2 main doors so, if possible, you’ll staff both doors.  Shifts can be split up to accomodate your team needs as well!

What happens to the funds raised during the Lifesaver Campaign and what is this year’s goal?

All funds raised during the Lifesaver Campaign stay in the Quad Cities and surrounding communities to support child abuse prevention activities.  Child Abuse Council focuses on prevention, education and treatment to give every child the childhood they deserve. Over 2,500 children and 4,000 adults benefit from the Council’s services each year.
