Milwaukee is expecting sub-zero temperatures over the next week. With wind chill, it could feel as cold as -25°F! For those living on the streets, this kind of weather can mean frostbite, hypothermia… even death.

We are open and ready to welcome struggling men, women and children who are eager to escape the bitter cold. If you know anyone in need of safe, warm shelter this #winter, please direct them to us as soon as possible.

And please — remember our homeless and hurting neighbors in your prayers. They need help now more than ever! #warmth #hope #refuge #homeless #shelter #MRMservesMKE

We are half way there!!! Our children have been taught from an early age the importance of acts of goodness and kindness. This is especially true on one's birthday. Last week our youngest two turned 5 & accompanied their older siblings giving out food packages & challas. There is nothing more meaningful to the elderly to be remembered by children.
Thanks for doing what you do, RWFC!
Thank you Samantha for telling the Pilot Club of Milwaukee about the benefits of participating in all ways at RiverWest Pantry. We were so glad to meet you and hear from you.
Praying for you all this morning! Blessings, peace and love!
Wonderful time volunteering this morning. Some of our UWM Center for International Education group got to help put together over 400 Thanksgiving meal item bags. What a great experience! Thank you Riverwest Food Pantry!
Any kind hearted person going to the pantry oct 12th that could possibly give me a ride there and back home. Im about 1 1/2 miles from there.
