Brad Murray Obituary (1940 - 2021) Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This week's #MissionMonday is a bit different.

Today, we honor the life of Brad Murray, past board chair and longtime volunteer at Guest House of Milwaukee.

Brad passed away last week and is being laid to rest today. Our thoughts are with Brad's friends and family today, and always.

We'll be forever grateful for Brad's leadership and support of our mission.

Special thanks to Hydrate the Homeless MKE for their donation of (1) pallet of drinking water (over 2,000 bottles) that we will use to insert into our bag lunches and distribute through our community outreach!

#GuestHouse #MoreThanShelter #HydrateTheHomelessMKE #Community #Partnership

Water is the body’s most fundamental need.
Every summer for the past 7 years, we have made it our mission to collect cases of water for the homeless community by reaching out to family, friends and the Milwaukee community. Last year we donated over 145,000 bottles of clean drinking water for those most in need. It is important for us to continue this tradition with our two daughters, Payton (6) and Mardie (4) to gain important life skills while learning to put others first, especially in today’s society where “me” is often times the focus.

Please help us Hydrate the Homeless this summer.

If you would like to donate to Hydrate the Homeless MKE:
Venmo: @hydratethehomelessmke
Paypal: [email protected]

Pricing per case:
$2.00/case
84 cases per pallet
24 bottles/case
$168/pallet

We are thrilled to announce we will be working with Premium Waters, Inc. again this year!

Excellent operation Guest house does great work. Please help support it.
How can we help during this time?
I am bringing my church youth group to Wisconsin for a retreat in early June and I am interested in having our volunteer at the Guest House. I am unable to contact you through your website but would love to be able to contact you to discuss the possibility of us serving with you. I was looking at the garden and/or making sandwiches.
Can you let me know what time people are needed to help set up the cots each night at Wilson Park and if there are particular days of the week when you have fewer volunteers than others?
We are serving October 28th this month! Here is the sign up...if you'd like to donate items let me know. If you are out of town or don't want to cook---you can donate cash for the items like bread, salad, etc. Thanks! I have venmo and paypal!
I have a lot of used clothing for women, men, girls and boys? Do you accept this as donation? I’m trying to find a place that gives away the clothes for free, to the people that really need them?
