The GMAR Kettle Moraine Council has been busy donating the remainder of their 2020 budget. Because they did not sponsor events or host educational meetings this year, there was money available to donate. During a Zoom meeting it was voted on to support these Charities' in Washington County.
A family and several individuals were sponsored by providing Christmas gifts through Family Promise, an organization working with homeless families in Washington County. Shelli Ellis did the shopping and herself along with her assistant Gina Feest and Kaye Erdman had great fun wrapping the gifts to be delivered.
The council will be providing box lunches for Hartford Hospital's first shift on December 22nd for a Christmas thank you. Working with the local Cousin's Subs, 200 box lunches will be delivered to our nurses and staff who have worked so tirelessly over that past several months.
Checks were also sent to the following organizations:
Chicks 4 a Cause, a support organization for Cancer patients.
Western Trails Equestrian Center, who work with youth in the area teaching them to ride and care for horses. They also do therapy using the horses.
Karls Place, a homeless shelter for adults located in West Bend.
We also decided to make a donation to Hope Street in Milwaukee. This idea came from this year's Lifetime Achievement Award winner Mary Steinke.
The remainder of our funds will go to the Youth Foundation, as it does every year.
We are all hoping that in 2021 we will again be planning our social and educational events.
