Recently the Chapter of Delta Upsilon of Culver-Stockton College spent the night in cardboard boxes on the parking lot of Hy-Vee on Broadway to bring awareness to the homeless situation in the country. In doing so they also raised money which they decided to donate to the Madonna House of Quincy. The Brothers of The Culver-Stockton Chapter of Delta Upsilon, including Brett Colton (pictured), presented Joanne Dedert, the Executive Director of the Madonna House, a check totaling $1,949.10 from their "Homeless Rally" at Hy-Vee.

Madonna House, a homeless shelter for pregnant women and women with children provides Emergency Shelter, Transitional Shelter, Prevention/Outreach Services for youth & adults who are at-risk of homelessness.

They also have a Food Pantry and Diaper Pantry. A monthly average of 1,000+ individuals are served at the Food Pantry. The hours of operation of the Food Pantry located at 601 State Street are 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. every Tuesday and 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. every Saturday.
