    Just One More Ministry (JOMM) began in 2008 as a small and informal food recovery program working with Meal Outreach Ministry at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa.  The food rescue program grew from a humble beginning of rescuing one box of bread and donating it to a central city church, into its current form rescuing and repackaging prepared food, fresh produce, and bakery from numerous Milwaukee suppliers and redistributing it to over 90 Greater Milwaukee inner city churches, food pantries, and organizations serving the homeless, poor, women, children, elderly and veterans.

    In September of 2020, JOMM moved to a new, larger facility on Milwaukee's north side to continue to rescue food and feed the hungry!

    This project will involve unloading and sorting large amounts of food, including stocking shelves, coolers, and freezers. There is room for 5 families at this project and it is open to ages 7+. Masks are required for this project.  We will have additional projects at JOMM in June!

    Sunbeam Kids has a long history of re-homing adorable art projects that our children bring home from school or make on a Saturday morning.  Many of the projects are just too cute to throw away and we hoped they would bring a smile & brighten someone else's walls!  For years, SBK collected & distributed these projects to local Meals On Wheels and hospice patients, totaling over 1,000 art projects collected from individuals, groups, troops and classrooms.  Amazing!!

    This May, Sunbeam Kids are going back to the drawing board... Literally!  Kids are invited to create personal masterpieces and send them to local assisted living homes.  So get out those paint brushes, those colored pencils, those oil pastels, even those crayons & coloring books!

    Before dropping your art in the mail, you can post your pictures on Facebook and tag @sunbeamkids with the hashtag #ArtForElders. We'll feature some of your posts on our page to share the love!  We LOVE to see your artwork. 

    Please use the registration button to sign up for this project and receive the mailing addresses for the local senior living facilities.

      We have a short-notice project for this weekend. It is another opportunity to make bag lunches for the Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach.  This project has been extremely popular during the past few months and we hope that a few member families will be able to help out this weekend!

      Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach is a small but mighty group of individuals who conduct street outreach for the homeless three nights per week, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. In addition to a hot meal, the group provides friends with a "lunch for later". Our homeless friends really seem to enjoy the brown bag lunches.  Sunbeam Kids has signed up to provide lunches on Tuesday, June 22.

      COVID-19 has caused a dramatic spike in homelessness and Street Angels is working hard to safely meet the needs of these vulnerable citizens. While the bag lunch contents may look a little different than they have in the past, they are as necessary and welcome as ever!  So, what should a lunch consist of?

      • Soft fruit such as tangerines, bananas, plums, etc. (Fruit cups w/a spoon are good too)

      • Chewy granola or protein bar

      • Individual bag of chips

      • Sweet treats! Examples: Little Debbie snack, cookies

      • Water flavor packet for bottled water drinks

      •  String cheese, beef sticks, etc.

      Other suggestions could be pre-packaged containers of fresh veggies w/dip, pudding cups, applesauce, crackers, trail mix, etc.

      With the current COVID-19 crisis, Street Angels asks that bag lunches are prepared in a clean environment using social distance precautions. When dropping off bag lunches on the night of outreach, please drop off in bags or boxes that you will not need returned. To keep with social distance, we ask that you place the lunches by one of our buses, which our team will place on the bus.

      Each family who registers will be asked to supply the contents for and assemble 10 bag lunches for the Street Angels program. Bag lunches MUST be delivered to Street Angels at 5:45pm on the day of outreach, Tuesday, June 22. Their location is 1236 South Layton Blvd, in the rear parking lot.
