Past Projects

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!

Lunch Pack & Love

A big shout out to the more than 50 KIC families who have helped us deliver 1300+ lunches to Just One More Ministry since May. Thank you for helping combat food insecurity in Milwaukee. You nourished the body and heart. The recipients so appreciate your notes of encouragement.

Hoop House – September

We had a wonderful morning harvesting vegetables for Groundwork Milwaukee at the Hoop Houses on Tuesday, September 1! Two families joined us for the morning with two 4 years olds and a 6 year old! We started out picking over 30 pounds of cherry tomatoes and ended the morning with harvesting almost 10 pounds of kale! All produce was then packed into a van that takes it to the Riverwest Food Pantry to be distributed to families in need. This was a fun project to stay socially distant and yet make a big impact in our community! 

Lunch Pack & Love

A huge THANK YOU to each of the families who participated in Lunch Pack and Love. Yesterday morning, we delivered 280+ lunches complete with sandwiches, fruit and snacks to Just One Ministry. The staff loved all of the kids’ beautiful care cards. Their work brought smiles to faces before the lunches even went out to those in need. 

Riverwest Food Pantry

Four families joined a crew of community volunteers to distribute food to approximately 120 families at the Riverwest Food Pantry. Our parent-child pairs were put to work as greeters, kid table leaders and healthy food sample servers.

Riverwest Food Pantry is focused on coming together around food to relieve hunger, improve lives and grow community well-being. We experienced their motto in action: In a community of generosity everyone gives and everyone receives.
