This week, your generous donations will be distributed.

On Wednesday, Pizza Man will distribute the funds raised starting at 4:30 p.m. at the Twisted Fork, 2238 N. Farwell Ave. Stop by to enjoy cocktails and appetizers while supporting those in need.

On Saturday, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., donated clothing and home goods will be distributed at Milwaukee Central Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 2229 N. Terrace Ave. Items collected over the last several weeks will be distributed to those who lost their homes.

At this time, the church has received sufficient donations and is no longer accepting addtional items.
