Did you know you can help families affected by mental illness by shopping at Bucktown Center For The Arts in Davenport?

Now through December 15, local artists will be donating a portion of their sales to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) an organization aimed at helping families with education and support for mental illness.

The holidays can be a tough time for those who live with mental illness. Artists and program organizers say it's important to help families as the number of people affected increases and budget cuts are affecting resources.

The center will be hosting a wine walk with the proceeds benefitting the NAMI organization. You can find more information about the event here.
