Every year the Milwaukee Rescue Mission holds special events and opportunities for the community to help those in need. At Brew City Marketing, we are always looking for ways we can lend a hand, and we were so glad we could join MRM for their Christmas volunteering event this past holiday season!

Spreading the Warmth with Gifts for All

For the event, we brought several bags of new and gently used personal care products and stuck around to help a big group decorate their gym. Once everything was covered in a holiday glow, parents from families in need were invited to come in and pick out presents that had been wrapped by volunteers. During that time, kids got to go to a separate room that was also spruced up with holiday decorations. MRM sends out a wish list, specifically asking for the types of gifts that will be the most welcome. It included:

 

  • New toys for children ranging from infants to teenagers
  • Perfumes 
  • Lotions
  • Jewelry & watches
  • Soaps & loofahs
  • Robes & slippers
  • Wallets
  • Gift cards
  • And wrapping paper so those that have volunteered can tie up all of these wonderful donations with a bow

 

Getting Involved with the Mission

MRM doesn’t just provide opportunities for Christmas volunteering, they have a lot of stuff on their calendar you can get involved with. They are also always looking for help with:

 

  • Serving meals
  • Gift wrapping & holiday decorating throughout the year
  • And general cleaning/yard work

 

You can reach out to enquire about getting involved here.
