Our MLK National Day of Service project was BIG in so many ways. Over forty families participated, we partnered with The HELP Project, we made 200 bags to donate to our Milwaukee homeless neighbors, and we met so many new people!
Children are born for this kind of work. They are naturally compassionate and showed us that so beautifully on this day. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. declared: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” And this event was one way to answer that question. Families worked and laughed together to alleviate, for a short while, the suffering of others.
Thank you to Kim from Mr. Bob’s Under the Bridge, Sarah and Brooke from The HELP Project, Fox6 News (special shout out to Deandra who entertained little Annie), North Shore NOW’s photographer Mary, the teen volunteers from Carmen High School, our parents/nannies/aunts/uncles/grandparents, and especially to our young helpers. You made our hearts feel HUGE on that icy Monday morning!
