for Kinship Community Food Center
Every fall, Whitefish Bay High School puts on a food drive for the Riverwest Food Pantry. Normally it takes hundreds of students, staff members, and parents to help distribute red plastic bags to every house in Whitefish Bay and then many more volunteers to collect and sort all of the donated food. This year, however, the food drive will look a little different.
To keep both communities safe, Bay Gives Back has decided to do the food drive VIRTUALLY!
Donate food directly to the Riverwest Food Pantry by clicking SHOP NOW and picking out the goods you would like to donate. It’s easy! You will be emailed a tax receipt at the time of purchase. All goods ordered online will be shipped directly to the Riverwest Food Pantry. Your purchase of food items through this virtual drive or financial donation will help us to fill the gaps for RWFP that have been created by this pandemic.
If you still want to physically drop off food donations, Whitefish Bay High School will be accepting personal food donations on October 24th from 10:00 am-1:00 pm at the high school located at 1200 E. Fairmount Avenue.
The need in our Milwaukee communities are greater than ever. Please help to make this the most successful Bay Gives Back drive ever! Every act of giving has the power to change us and reshape our world.
Here's a beautiful note from someone received food from the Riverwest Food Pantry:
"I lost my job… and with the new virus floating around, the job opportunities have practically stopped. It was the first time I have ever used a food pantry. Your staff were so kind; I got a little teary-eyed as they loaded up my trunk with bags of food.”
Thank you, as always, for standing with the Whitefish Bay High School and Riverwest Food Pantry communities. It's during these difficult times that we need each other now more than ever.
