MUSCATINE, Iowa–Progress Muscatine began as an idea among friends who wanted to work together and do good deeds in the community. Now, five years later, Progress Muscatine solidified its mission, elected a board of directors, and is seeking 501c3 status.
The mission of Progress Muscatine is to empower Muscatine County residents to identify problems and work toward sustainable solutions for the common good.
