Holiday Drives 2018
October 25, 2018
Capuchin Community Services is kicking off its annual Holiday Drives. Are you looking for avenues to help others during the holidays? Capuchin Community Services has many methods where families can help other families. We encourage businesses, organizations, parishes, and synagogues to contact us and let us know how many food boxes they can fill or toys they can provide for children 10 years old and under.
Typically, 1,000 food boxes and turkeys are distributed at Thanksgiving. Another 1,000 food boxes including turkeys or hams are distributed at Christmas. Also, toys are distributed to 1,000 families with children aged 10 years or younger at Christmas. We are also seeking hats and gloves for children to be added as additional gifts for Christmas. Lastly, organizations can request a bin for our T&T drive, (toilet paper and toothpaste) for our many working poor Milwaukee families.
Many of our families have a roof over their heads, but cannot afford to shop for the fixings of a traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. The Holiday Food Box Program and Christmas Toy Drive brings families together. Each food box has the ingredients for a traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
Families qualify for the program by attending one or more empowerment classes whose topics include health, finance, wellness, nutrition, job skills, etc.
