The Monthly Wish: July 2021
By: Staff on Jul 1, 2021
Your generosity powers our mission, so we’re making sure we use your gifts wisely. Here’s a wish-list of items for our shelters, updated monthly so you can see what we need most and where you can make the biggest impact.
Visit our Meal Train or email Katlin Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org to find even more ways to get involved!
What's new this month? Sippy Cups & Tie-Dye!
As new families settle into Juno House, sippy cups have become treasured gold! We are desperately in need of more sippy cups to keep up with our Juno kids. Regular cups are no match!
Secondly, and following suit with the bright colors of the 4th of July fireworks, we are requesting Tie-dye this month! Emily, the Shelter Lead of Jeremy House Safe Haven, is hosting a special Tie-Dye Day for her guests. This unique shelter, for adult men and women experiencing mental illness and chronic homelessness, is one of only two safe havens in Wisconsin.
Staying true to our mission, Emily restores hope and dignity at Jeremy House through celebrating guest successes such as new jobs, housing opportunities, AND the day-to-day joys of life. We thank Emily for always finding new ways to engage and build up those around her!
