The award recognizes the contributions of the dozens of Quad Cities city and county governments; public health entities; health care providers; emergency operations; faith-based organizations; nonprofit and private organizations; schools and education partners; and businesses who came together to protect our community during the pandemic.

The award was presented at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 11, at Rhythm City Casino Resort.
