    Tis' the season to help others in our community!  Sunbeam Kids will be hosting a holiday drive benefitting the Street Angels, Inc. homeless outreach program this holiday season.  The Street Angels provide food, water, clothing, hygiene items, blankets and other needed items to Milwaukee County’s homeless population.  Street Angels is often the first responders to those in a homeless crisis.  We'll be collecting the following items from their wishlist*:  

    • Men's jogging pants (medium-2 XL)
    • Hand/toe warmers
    • Thermal underwear (shirts and pants)
    • Flashlights & AAA batteries
    • Smaller sized jar candles
    • Small denomination gift cards for McDonalds. 

    Two ways to help:

    1.  Drop off items on Saturday, December 21st between 1:30-2:30 at the Wauwatosa Public Library Firefly Room, 7635 W North Ave, Wauwatosa.  We'll have card making supplies if kids want to make a Holiday card to go with their donation.

    2.  Drop off items at our Board Member/project planner's house in Wauwatosa (near Mayfair Mall) anytime the week of December 16th.  Address will be provided to those who sign up.

    *If you'd like to shop from the Street Angels Wishlist and ship to them directly you can use these links for Walmart or Amazon

    Thank you for your consideration -- and wishing you a very safe and happy Holiday season.

      Serving Dinner at St. Vincent de Paul
      On Friday 12/27 we'll be back to serve dinner to families in need at SVDP!   What a  great  opportunity to serve over the Holiday season. 

      The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee is an organization dedicated to the elimination of hunger and poverty in our community.  They provide free meals 5 nights per week at this location, as well as at a location on Milwaukee's south side.  Last year, they served over 102,000 meals, over 15,000 of those meals were served to children.

      There are two opportunities to serve: 

      1) Serve dinner to 100+ adults and children (open to members) Families are asked to bring 100% juice (& gently used children's books and/or glass  mugs or sippy cups if you have them!) to share with the guests as well as serve them dinner.  Max capacity 8 families, all ages welcome.  

      2) Drop-off 100% Juice, Gently Used Children's Books, Gently used glass mugs or sippy cups prior at our project leader's home. Open to everyone. Exact address to be provided to those who sign up.  No max capacity. 

      NOTE: There is no specific age requirement, but because we will be serving to the public, SVDP reminds us that it is very important to be attentive to your kids during the project.

      -------------------------------------------------

      This medical supply collection and packing event is now an annual favorite! We do this project in conjunction with Mother's Day Out Preschool & Community United Methodist Church on behalf of International needs and a group of local medical professionals traveling to Ghana to care for kids and families in need of medical care. 

      Why attend:

      Malaria, malnutrition and water-born diseases are all prevalent in Ghana, Africa.  A group of US medical professionals and helpers join International Needs (IN) Ghana’s staff for a week of holding medical clinics.  Each day during their trip they set up a makeshift pharmacy in the schools and open the doors for basic medical care.  In past years, the team saw over 2,000 men, women, boys and girls at six locations. People walked for miles and waited for hours in hopes of seeing a doctor. For many this would be their first time seeking medical care.

      We've worked with these groups to donate hundreds of pounds of supplies -- so let's work together this year to help them reach even more people during their upcoming trip! 

      What to expect:

      Hear first hand about a local woman's (Terry Heyward) experiences with a medical mission team and the people in Ghana and pack medical supplies attendees bring to donate.  We'll weigh the suitcases at the end to help put a number to the kids' hard work!  

      The kids will also get to help create a Valentine themed art project to show the kids of Ghana how much we care!

      Capacity & Age Recommendations:

      30 families (after the 30th family you will be added to the waiting list. If you get a notification that you are registered, that means someone cancelled and you are in!).

      All ages welcome. 

      What to bring:

      Please sign up to bring supplies to pack, if you are able, so we have enough to pack together...but also because it helps kids connect knowing the item(s) they brought are helping families all the way in Africa. Let's see how many suitcases full of supplies we can pack this year! 

      We look forward to doing this project again--hope to see you there!
