School Supply Drive

In order to break the cycle of poverty, our Capuchin Community Services' kids need a good education. It is important that our children are properly outfitted with school supplies. Can you help?

We gather supplies late July and early August with distribution in August. 

If time is at a premium, shop our Target Registry or Amazon Wishlist. You do the shopping and it's shipped right to Capuchin Community Services to assist our kids. Please mail donations to House of Peace, School Supply Drive, 1702 W. Walnut Street, Milwaukee, WI 53205. OR use our easy online donation system (we will do the shopping for you, be sure to include a comment that your gift is for school supplies). 

Donations are needed by Friday, August 10, 2018. 

Please drop off donations at Capuchin Community Service's House of Peace site, 1702 W. Walnut, Milwaukee, WI 53205, Monday-Friday, 8:30-Noon; 1-3:30 PM, at the 17th Street door located at the U-drive.  

If you are unable to donate school supplies we invite you to make a monetary donation.
