Gem City’s Fourth Annual Quanada Collection Kicks Off

Gem City and Quanada have teamed up again this winter season to collect clothing, personal care items, and cleaning supplies during November and December.

This is our fourth annual collection for Quanada and we’re confident that our gym community will make it one of the biggest yet! You can place donations in the plastic bins in the Gem City lobby during business hours.

There’s a wide range of helpful items that can assist Quanada and the people they serve. These include clothing, personal care items like razors and feminine hygiene products, and cleaning supplies. Please see the full list at the bottom of this blog.


Quanada empowers survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing a range of free and confidential services from counseling and legal advocacy to an emergency shelter and food and clothing pantry. You do NOT have to stay at the shelter to access counseling or other services.

Domestic and sexual violence are never ok. You can find help by reaching out to Quanada at 800.369.2287 or

Quanada is a nonprofit providing counseling 24 hours a day, everyday, for the counties of Adams, Brown, Hancock, Schuyler and Pike in Illinois.
