Wish List

Minimize

We are especially in need of food for our pantry. We serve the entire 53204 zip code and have seen a huge increase in first time pantry users as people have lost jobs during the current economic downturn. 

 We accept perishable and non-perishable items. For more information on our pantry's current needs, please call (414) 645-2122.

Due to storage space limitations, we do not take used clothing or toys. Please dial 211 to find locations that will accept these items.


2014 Spring Wish List

As always, we are collecting donations of items for the families and individuals we serve. If you are interested in donating, you can check out our 2104 Winter Wish List below for ideas. If you want to have a copy to take with you as you shop, you can download a copy of the list HERE

We prefer that donation items be new - we cannot take used clothing or toys due to storage limitations. 

Items we are currently most in need of are highlighted with bold type.

Gift cards can be a good option as well, as our guests can purchase items that are most appropriate for their needs. Merchant-issued gift cards are most useful; pre-paid debit cards, or bank-issued gift cards can have fees associated with use that place a financial burden on our guests as they use them. Please see the list below for some suggestions. 

If a financial contribution fits best with your budget or schedule, visit our Donation page to set up a one-time, or recurring donation.
