Seventeen years ago,
a group of families from our subdivision decided to do
something charitable during the holidays. A monetary
contribution was made to the Food
Pantry in Waukesha. When we arrived
at the Food Pantry, the line was out the door and the
parking lot was full. We all were touched by the sight.
Since then, we expanded our team and efforts.
Over the years, we collected $46,250 and 39.61
food from our neighborhood donations!
Way to go neighbors!!
my 14 years of working at the Food Pantry, I am still
incredibly affected by the people who come to us in
need. The Neighbors Helping Neighbors group is outreach
at its finest – families,
friends, and neighbors working together to guarantee
that no one in our county will go without food.”
