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

    On Wednesday 10/23 we will be joining the Mercy Mats volunteers at their regular weekly project at the West Allis Library to prepare materials for sleeping mats for local homeless people, made out of plastic bags.  

    Volunteers from Mercy Mats of West Allis will help new volunteers learn how to do this work, and then they will later distribute the completed mats to a homeless shelter they work with in Milwaukee. NOTE: our SBK leader will arrive at 5pm, but you're welcome to join the MM crew earlier!  They love having SBK helpers. 

    There is a job for everyone, including sorting bags, flattening bags, making plarn (you guessed it...plastic yard made from the plastic bags!) and for the crafty people in the group, crocheting the plarn into mats. 

    Making one mat is quite labor intensive and takes multiple weeks, but what a difference a mat makes to the person who will receive it!  

    You can check on the Mercy Mats West Allis Facebook page for more info on their weekly Wednesday projects -- all are welcome, just drop in  unless you have  a large group, then please contact them through FB Messenger prior.  

    Open to members of all ages. Max 7 families. 

    You do not need to stay the entire time, but please plan to stay for at least an hour to maximize the amount we can contribute to their efforts.

    Serving Dinner at St. Vincent de Paul
    On Friday 10/25 we'll be back to serve dinner to families in need at SVDP! 

    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 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 and/or Gently Used Children's Books Prior  to 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. 

    Thank you for lending a hand!

    On Saturday November 9 we'll be back with our friends at JOMM, helping get food into the hands of people who need it most!  They have moved into a new facility in Glendale since our last project, so it will be a new adventure for us as a group. 

    Just One More Ministry (JOMM) rescues food from the landfill by collecting perfectly good unused food from catering events, etc. to repackage and give to those in need. They also provide food via their food pantry location downtown Milwaukee. We'll have more details as the project approaches, but we'll be helping JOMM by sorting food or whatever they need most from us that morning. 

    There is room for 6-8 families at this project and it is open to all ages.
