Mel Foster Co. Gives

Mel Foster Co. is a family-owned, local business serving the Quad Cities region for over a century. You see our name on banners at big community events, like Quad-City Times Bix 7, Quad Cities Marathon and Festival of Trees. We have our logo on the quiet signs held up at the John Deere Classic. But Mel Foster Co. contributes to many other causes in various ways.

We Volunteer

Agents and staff of Mel Foster Co. devote time volunteering in the community. We volunteer as a company to support families and children by sponsoring teens through organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters. We encourage individuals to volunteer with personally relevant causes, knowing that improving the lives of others improves our whole community. We collect toys and coats for those in need.

We Get Involved

The Mel Foster Co. team gets involved. We recognize the value of working with other community leaders. Agents and staff serve on boards and committees to help drive success through strong local economic development. We brainstorm with executives on advancing mental health awareness and care through institutions like the Robert Young Center. We spend time at community events getting to know people and learning how to improve our businesses and neighborhoods.

We Support

We give more than financial gifts to support non-profits like the River Bend Food Bank. We create teams to participate in fundraisers and organize mobile blood drives during the work week so it’s convenient for eligible donors to give. Agents choose a few favorite local establishments during Small Business Saturday and show patronage to restaurants, cafes and boutiques. We collect donations for animal welfare centers and libraries alike.

Mel Foster Co. cares about the Quad Cities and our sourrounding communities. Consider working with a local Mel Foster Co. agent today.
