The Issue: Poverty and Homelessness in Milwaukee

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 26% of Milwaukee residents lived in poverty between 2006 and 2010. The city's 2011 Point in Time survey counted more than 1,400 homeless adults and children on a single day.

The Campaign: Serve Breakfast to People in Need

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then The Gathering of Southeast WI, Inc. can provide breakfast to 200 people experiencing homelessness or hunger. Each additional $10 donation provides four more guests with breakfast. Meals cost $2.50 apiece.

The Gathering's Breakfast Program serves meals Monday–Friday at its downtown site. Roughly 75% of the more than 200 guests served each morning are experiencing homelessness.
