Holiday Help for the Homeless

Written by admin   // November 25, 2010   // 0 Comments

Several businesses and organizations have stepped up to share with less fortunate families during the Thanksgiving holiday season.

The Family Support Center, a shelter that serves homeless families and is operated by the Social Development Commission (SDC), was the recipient of the generosity.

Kelly Outsourcing Inc. conducted for the second year in a row a food drive for the shelter. Sharyn Carlson dropped off almost 200 food items that the business collected from its employees. She noted her co-workers started volunteering at the Center last year and enjoyed it so much, they adopted the facility for their annual holiday project this year.

The shelter also benefited from the attentions of My Sister’s Closet, a consignment store based in Mukwonago. Linda Cizauskas of the store dropped off several large boxes of clothing for use at the Family Support Center’s clothing bank.

Residents were also able to get an early Thanksgiving dinner, thanks to the efforts of Cream City Wisconsin Chapter of the Links. Members of that service groups held an afternoon of activities and dinner on the weekend before the holiday.

Staff at the SDC facility expressed their gratitude to the businesses and groups, saying they help give residents reasons to be thankful during the holiday season.
