Hosted by Toddlers and Kids on a Mission and The HELP Project.

We are excited to be partnering with TOAM on this MLK Jr. National Day of Service event.

In the city of Milwaukee, there are close to 1,500 people who do not have a place to call home. Partnering with The Help Project we will pack On the Go Bags- gallon sized ziploc bags with things like lip balm, small toiletries, and socks. On the Go Bags will not create a complete solution but they will provide temporary comfort especially during the brutal Milwaukee winter months.

PURPOSE

Our children will see that through teamwork, they can make a difference. By focusing on basic necessities for some of our most vulnerable Milwaukee citizens, children will extend dignity and respect to others. As a parent/caregiver, you will have a constructive response the next time you and your children cross paths with one of our homeless Milwaukee neighbors.

IMPACT

Recipients of our On the Go Bags will have some basic needs met but they will also be acknowledged as humans, deserving of respect like the rest of us!
