They braved the elements this afternoon all to help Quad Cities families in need. Saturday was Genesis Health Systems Fill the Rig event.
Genesis employees collected donations outside of Walmart in Silvis. Anything from non-perishable food, household and, hygiene products even cash.
Everything goes to Winnie's House in Moline. They provide shelter, food, clothing and emotional support to any Quad Citian who's hit hard times.
"These people are in some unfortunate circumstance and we have a lot of resources around we just gotta learn where to get them from and use them to be there for everybody," said Julie Irby with Genesis.
Officials say the donations from this event supply Winnie's Place for 6 to 8 months.
