Join us in serving a hot dinner to approximately 20 women and their children staying at the Women’s Center Shelter on Monday, January 14.
Founded in 1980, the Milwaukee Women’s Center provides comprehensive services and treatment for women, men, and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence, addiction, mental health issues, homelessness, and poverty.
This is an especially wonderful opportunity for children who shopped for holiday gifts as part of “Holiday Giving with Toddlers and Kids on a Mission” to meet children and families at the organization served by that mission. (Please note, the children at the shelter on January 16 will not be the same children who received the gifts, but they will be children served by the same organization: the Milwaukee Women’s Center at Community Advocates).
PURPOSE: Kids and their caregivers will help set up meal service at the shelter, then serve food and help brighten the evening of families staying at the shelter. Impact: Kids will see that serving others can be fun and that they are capable of making a difference.
Activities: Our volunteer group of children and caregivers will serve dinner to about 20 women and their children staying at the shelter at the Milwaukee Women’s Center. Toddlers and Kids on a Mission will be bringing a catered dinner to the center. You do not need to prepare any food in advance. There is a kitchen at the center where we will warm up and prep the meal service. Then we will serve dinner to approximately 20 women and 30 children. Following the meal, we will clean up.
When: Monday, January 14, 5:15 - 7 pm (Dinner service begins at 6 pm)
Where: Milwaukee Women’s Center Shelter of Community Advocates in the Burnham Park Neighborhood – We will send you the exact address after signup
