Mother-and-daughter team Pam and Emily Philipp founded Operation Glass Slipper in 2006 to help high-school girls prepare for their proms. Girls who cannot afford the high cost of attending and outfitting themselves for prom can confide in a trusted adult from their school or community to obtain a referral to the program. The girls then choose a dress, purse, shoes, a necklace, and earrings from Operation Glass Slipper's inventory, which is made up primarily of new shoes and accessories and donated dresses, although the organization must purchase additional dresses to fill gaps in sizes. The girls can also bring a female companion to help them shop. Since its inception, Operation Glass Slipper has outfitted more than 1,000 girls for prom each year.

When Mark and Susan Lacek's baby died two weeks before she was to be born, they admitted that their "world was shattered." They named her Faith to represent the faith they'd need to get them through this dark period. In her honor, they also founded Faith's Lodge to help other parents remain strong in the face of grief.
Faith's Lodge provides a respite for referred families that have suffered the loss of a child in the past three years or have a child with a serious illness. Set on 80 acres of tranquil northern Wisconsin woodland, the Lodge has eight guest suites, a reading library, an arts and crafts space, and a network of trails. Families can stay in the suites up to five nights once a year for a suggested donation or with scholarship help. During their stay, the Lodge runs therapeutic activities including journaling, woodworking, and painting memorial heart stones to help parents work through their grief. Group therapy and a welcome dinner bring bereaved families together, and parents are encouraged to take walks in the woods or spend time in quiet reflection.

While one-time food and grocery donations are important to people in need, the question still remains: how can we ensure that same person isn’t in need again tomorrow, or in a month?
Second Harvest Heartland addresses this question by working to provide long-term hunger relief to the community. As a member of Feeding America, and the Upper Midwest’s biggest hunger-relief organization, Second Harvest Heartland continuously accepts donations of dry, refrigerated, and frozen food and stores them in 90,000+ square feet of space. From there, the organization's fleet of trucks delivers the donations to homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and other community centers. But food distribution is only part of Second Harvest Heartland's mission.
The organization runs programs and initiatives such as Food Rescue, which prevents millions of pounds of food from going unused. Professional drivers head to local grocers to collect food that would otherwise be thrown away—including fresh produce, dairy, and meat—and distributes them to soup kitchens and other partners in Second Harvest Heartland’s 59-county service area. Other programs help educate members of the community, empowering them to get involved in the fight to end hunger.
