Kids Helping Kids with Our Next Generation

There is nothing more beautiful than kids helping kids! 40+ families went shopping to make sure that the youth served by Our Next Generation (ONG) are ready to start their school year off strong with a fresh set of new school supplies.

After working hard to bring in all of the heavy stuffed backpacks, we went on a tour of ONG and saw kids taking piano lessons, gardening, and learning about US states. We were even introduced to the goats living on the property this summer by teens who are learning animal husbandry. We rounded out the tour with a fast and furious game of tag on the playground with the ONG kids. It was a beautiful morning!

Milwaukee Diaper Mission

Thank you to the families who participated  in our partnership with the Milwaukee Diaper Mission, it was a huge success. We packaged approximately 15,0000 diapers either in person or at home. Milwaukee Diaper Mission acts as Milwaukee’s basic needs bank, partnering with local social service agencies to provide a reliable source of basic essentials for the families they serve.

Next Door MKE Book Drive

KIC Families! You did it again! We delivered hundreds of books to Next Door MKE because of your generous donations. We are so pleased to get books into the hands of children and teachers all over Milwaukee with this partnership. 
An extra special thank you to the strong families who carried the books to the doorstep of Next Door MKE – Angie Stowe, Sarah Vinson, Annie Turim, Erin Lemoine, Jobea Murray and Lynn Raines. 
We may be physically distant, but we sure can make difference in our community in thoughtful ways!

Holiday Gift Tag Project

The Holidays will be a bit merrier for the kids and families served by the Milwaukee Women’s Center, a program of Community Advocates. Together, our community donated over 100 gifts to be distributed to children in Milwaukee ranging from newborn to 18 years old! Thank you for remembering the importance of GIVING this holiday season!
