In Living

There are several great ways for you to give back this holiday season.

Newaukee's Season of Giving is a chance for you to give back

Believe it or not, the holiday season is right around the corner. If you're looking to get into the holiday spirit by giving back, Newaukee's Season of Giving, presented by Catholic Financial Life, offers a great opportunity to do so.

If you need a little more incentive to help out, any volunteer who attends an event will get a drink ticket that can be redeemed at any NEWwaukee event through March 2018.

In addition to Season of Giving, NEWwaukee is hosting a supply drive to collect gently used ornaments and craft supplies on Nov. 16th with The Social at Stella Van Buren. OnMilwaukee is a proud partner of that event.

There are still volunteer opportunities to help out at for the following events:
