How did the Helping Hoofs Program originate?
The Pete the Purple Bull Program is an entity of QC United, a charity organization that has been providing a variety of community programs in the Quad Cities since 2009. A few of these programs include: 1) a scholarship program that has served well over 100 QC high school graduates, 2), the Dreams Come True program that provided educational trips to at-risk students and 3), Pete's Bully-Prevention Programs that serve QC schools and communities.

The concept for Pete's Helping Hoofs Program was first piloted when Pete joined with the Lincoln Resource Center in Davenport, Iowa in the summer of 2021 for the 1st Annual Summer BBQ. This event raised over $4000 for the Lincoln Center while also supporting Pete's Bully Prevention Programs.
