WOW! Kudos to all of you who rallied on shorter notice to contribute to the urgent winter collection for the homeless in Waukesha County via the Hope Center – over 160 items/sets/pairs of used and new gloves, hats, scarves, socks, long underwear, hand warmers, jackets/ coats, blankets, tops/sweaters, pants/leggings, a sleeping bag, and a tarp were contributed! Impressive was your thoughtfulness in choosing items to keep our street brothers and sisters very warm!Hope C
