Capuchin Community Services is kicking off its annual Spread the Warmth drive. Businesses, organizations, parishes, mosques, and synagogues are encouraged to participate.
As the temperatures begin to drop, we encourage our neighbors to remember those who are unable to purchase adequate warm winter gear for themselves or their children.
Every day we have families asking for assistance with warm winter clothing. How can we turn these good people away? We can’t. The Capuchins have been serving the poor and hungry since 1968; all without government assistance. We depend on donations.
The Capuchin Friars are requesting gently used or new winter clothing for women, men, and children. Hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, jackets, coats, blankets are all needed.
To find out how your group can help Milwaukee’s central city families this winter season, go to http://www.capuchincommunityservices.org/ways-to-help/special-drives/capuchins-warm-winter-drive or call 414.374.8841, ext. 41.
