We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defenses to help you safely develop immunity to the disease. This lowers your chances of getting the disease and suffering from their complications. Keep you, your loved ones and neighbors safe by getting vaccinated. Starting this Saturday, March 27th, thru Saturday April 17th you can come to Gee’s Clippers MKE Wellness Clinic, located inside the barbershop to get your COVID-19 vaccination. #COVID-19 #Vaccination #GeesMKEWellnsssClinic #GeesClippers #AnthemBlueCrossBlueShield #HyattPharmacy #UniteWi #MoreThanJustABarbershop

General information

History The National Council of Urban League Guilds is comprised of volunteer auxiliaries of the National Urban League. The Urban League Guild was started in New York City in 1942 by Mrs. Mollie Moon to raise funds in support of the Urban League’s mission. Since starting the Guild, the organization has grown to thousands of volunteers in 43 chapters around the country. Throughout its 75 year history, the Urban League Guild has played a significant role in the Urban League movement. Guild members are considered to be the heart and soul of the Urban League movement, as they fundraise for their local affiliates, contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually and give back to the community in a variety of ways. The Milwaukee Urban League Guild was organized as an auxiliary in 1970 to support the mission of the Milwaukee Urban League. For over 45 years, Guild members have been actively involved in fundraising to support the Urban League’s programs and services, and assisting with special events and projects. We also play a key role in connecting the Urban League to the community through our volunteer activities. Who We Are Our membership includes individuals from all walks of life. We are laborers, educators, entrepreneurs, professionals and retirees. As members of the Guild, we do volunteer work on behalf of the Urban League without the expectation of pay or tangible gain. We volunteer because we care about the community and want to make a difference in the lives of others. Every third Thursday of the month (except July and August), we come together to discuss the challenges facing our community and seek ways where we can make a meaningful impact in areas such as financial illiteracy, job readiness, health and wellness, and youth education. We also promote awareness of the Urban League in the community by participating in volunteer events ranging from feeding the homeless to the BloodCenter of Wisconsin annual Blood Drive at Northcott Neighborhood House. Through our good works, we strengthen the Urban League’s capacity to meet the needs of the community it serves. Join Us We are looking for new members that are committed to making a difference in the lives of others in our community. As a member of the Milwaukee Urban League Guild, it offers you the opportunity to: • Expand your business and professional network, and connect with individuals from all walks of life. • Volunteer your talents and skills that will greatly benefit the community. • Develop and enhance your leadership skills. • Get involved in your community through political and civic activities. • Participate in social and cultural events.

About us:

Community Service Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.” With her quote in mind, the Milwaukee Urban League Guild offers members the opportunity to do profound work in the community, from volunteering for worthwhile causes to working on community service projects that serve others or fulfill a need. Here are some of the past and present ways in which the Guild gives back to the community: • Read Across America This event, which encourages and motivates students to read, was held at a local Milwaukee middle school and attracted over 70 community leaders and individuals who read to students and participated in discussions. • Annual Healthy Awareness Day Each year, the Guild focuses on a health issue that is impacting the community, such as LUPUS, Diabetes or hypertension. We sponsor and promote awareness of these issues at local venues throughout the community. • BloodCenter of Wisconsin Blood Drive In addition to donating blood at this annual event, Guild members work as volunteers to register individuals to donate blood. • Employment Assistance The Guild supports the Milwaukee Urban League’s Employment Assistance Program by volunteering to conduct mock interviews and coach job seekers on ways to enhance their employability. • Voter Registration and Elections The Guild provides poll workers at the polling site sponsored by the Milwaukee Urban League. • Doing the Right Thing Awards Each year, the Guild provides volunteers for this Milwaukee Urban League event, which recognizes students for their achievement in academics, sports, the Arts and community service. • National Achievers Society Not only does the Guild raise funds to help the Milwaukee Urban League provide laptop computers to deserving students, but we also provide volunteers to help this event run smoothly. • Civic Engagement Guild members are involved in a variety of civic activities, such as the VISION 2050 Workshops undertaken by the Southeastern Regional Planning Commission.
