Delivery of Donations from 100 Women Who Care--MKE Metro West to FOOD Pantry of Waukesha
On Tuesday, May 25, Kathy Powers and Jane Condon delivered 60 checks from 100 WWC to the FOOD Pantry of Waukesha County. In addition we have had twelve on-line donations. Several company matches and stock donations are in process, as well. Thank you for all your generosity - we are currently at $6,575 to provide to the FOOD Pantry at this critical time.
The FOOD Pantry has never seen anything like what they are currently experiencing. The need has been great and so vastly different than past periods of need. They are still hearing from new clients who have been laid off and from others who have not only had Coronavirus but have lost a family member to the virus. They have plans to use our donations towards accessibility projects, such as their expanded home delivery program and options for online and phone call pre-ordering. They have also started a mobile pantry delivery in partnership with the Elmbrook School District. These projects will help the most vulnerable – children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.
Our goal is to have 100% member participation, and we are currently at 75%. If you have not yet submitted your donation, we have extended the deadline to NOON on Tuesday, June 1. The FOOD Pantry offers an easy and secure way to donate at https://waukeshafoodpantry.networkforgood.com/ .
Please consider fulfilling your commitment on-line if you have not already done so. We will be applying for a matching grant from the R. M. Schultz Family Foundation on Tuesday, June 1, so we would like to have as high total to be matched.
