Thanks to our Generous Community!
Thanks to the generosity of the community we were able to provide holiday gifts to more than 30 local families. The holidays can be especially stressful for families that are already facing mental health, financial or other challenges. Many of our clients requested items such as household supplies, bedding, winter clothing, shoes, groceries and diapers. Helping to fulfill holiday wish lists were: Gauthier Biomedical, Charter Manufacturing, Cross Fit I.F., Grafton Cub Scout Pack 3839, TSU-The Student Union, residents of Lincoln Village, the Lenox Family ABC Life Group and numerous individuals and families. Thanks also to Ozaukee County Circuit Courts, the MOMs Club of Mequon/Thiensville, Cornerstone Community Bank and the 5K class at St. Francis Borgia School for the diapers, hats, mittens, blankets and cards.
The holiday donations were greatly appreciated! But it is not too late to donate items like diapers, grocery store gift cards, gas gift cards and shared-ride taxi vouchers for us to distribute to clients throughout the year.
