Friends of HOME,
On Oct 22nd, Milwaukee Continuum of Care is putting on Project Homeless Connect, and the HOME Project has volunteered to help out! We'll be staffing a table from 1pm to 4pm, and since winter is approaching, we will be providing frostbite education and information on warming shelters, etc.
How can you help, you ask?! You can volunteer to donate even just an hour of your time to help out at this event. It should be a great experience! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to join us.
