School Supply Drive for All Peoples Church

School is still in session this year but due to shipping delays and early start dates for many Milwaukee schools (early August), our school supply drive is ON! Let's help the kids in the All Peoples neighborhood begin their school year with the supplies they need! Read below for two different ways to donate!

Supply Packages

We are partnering with Winkies Toys and Variety! again this year. We had a record response in 2021. They are offering 4 different age-specific school supply “packages” you can order directly through Winkies. Winkies also donates 5% of all School Tools sales to All Peoples Church! You simply order them and you are finished—Winkies and the FPLC staff will take over from there!

Forms are due to Winkies by Sunday, May 22

Click the link below for the order form.

We are collecting ONLY these things at the Church office:

  • Sturdy backpacks (empty) for kindergarten – high school children KN95 masks only—both children and adult sizes

All Peoples Ministries

From garden work to student tutoring, All Peoples has come up with great ideas to support their mission during Covid! There are several ways you can help and support their goals. We have started our annual School Supply Drive for the students of All Peoples as well.

The Gathering

The Gathering is committed to serving their guests, even during Covid-19. After working with the health department during the pandemic, they've changed their methods, but the goals are the same...to help feed the hungry in body, mind, and spirit, they've adjusted our methods of sanitizing, preparing & distributing food to ensure we are being safe. THEY NEED YOUR HELP!

 

If you are healthy and willing, they'd love to have your help packaging bag lunches. Volunteer numbers are limited and spaced in a large hall.

 

We have dates that are specific to FPLC (click button below to sign up). If you can't make those dates but still would like to volunteer, please go directly to The Gathering's Volunteer Page (button below) to sign up for any of their open dates and locations.

 

For more information about volunteering, please contact Joe Graf; joe.graf@sbcglobal.net.

Serenity Inns & Alumni House

Serenity Inn's goal is to provide a safe place for men in Milwaukee to recover from their addiction to either drugs or alcohol.  FPLC volunteers provide dinner to the residents 3 times a month. Eat with the men, drop dinner off or even order them a meal to be delivered by a restaurant! They are following COVID-19 protocols. For more information on volunteering, Covid requirements, and/or to sign up, click the "Make a Meal" button below. It's a great activity to do with your middle/high school-aged youth so they can hear the anti-drug/alcohol message.

 

If you can't make the FPLC dates, or they are full, you can sign up for other dates directly through Serenity Inns' volunteer page. Just click the button below to go to that page.

Afghan Refugee Resettlement

Update

FPLC has a committee of devoted members who are sponsoring two refugee families from Afghanistan. Without donations of funds, furniture and time, we could not have dreamed of being able to do this! Thank you!
Members of both families are busy! They have begun school and English classes, some have found jobs while others are preparing for employement, they getting to know their way around their new city. They have begun taking the bus and are working toward getting their drivers lisenses.

We have a strong committee of people who are very dedicated to assisting these wonderful families. If you have any questions about the program or would like to donate funds to help support our efforts, please contact Stacia Hickey through button below.
