According to U.S. Census Bureau figures released in 2009, Milwaukee was designated the fourth poorest city in the United States, with nearly 4 in 10 youth living at or below the poverty level. Penfield Children's Center provides holistic therapy, education, and support programs to Milwaukee County infants and young children, with a focus on those with special needs. The majority of the children whom the organization serves come from low-income households.
As the cold winter months approach, Penfield Children's Center's staff expects that the families of many of its young attendees will not be able to afford adequate winter gear. The organization would like to outfit youth as young as newborns up to 5 years old with warm outerwear. Each child will receive a full winter ensemble—which includes a down coat, a hat, and a pair of mittens—that is an appropriate match for Milwaukee's harsh winter temperatures.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Penfield Children's Center provide winter outerwear for children from economically disadvantaged households. If G-Team members raise $300, then Penfield Children's Center can supply 10 children with winter coats, mittens, and hats. Each additional $30 will purchase a set of outerwear for another child.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
