In addition to frequent donations to the local schools and churches for their fundraising events and use of the facility by non-profit groups for special events, we do ongoing work with 3 agencies near and dear to our heart.
American Red Cross — we host 2 community blood drives annually. We do a drive in the early spring and another the day after Thanksgiving (which we’ve renamed “Red Friday). The fall drive, in particular, is an important one, coming at a time when needs are high and drives thin out for a few weeks.
Saukville Food Pantry — we serve as an ongoing drop point for non-perishable food items. Members and other patrons are encouraged to frequently add a few items to the barrel!
Advocates of Ozaukee County — we’ve done a few special drives and last summer began a new event (Tabata-thon) to support this critical agency working on behalf of domestic violence victims. In December 2017, Jim began a 3-year term on the Advocates’ Board of Directors and serves on the Advocacy and Community Outreach Committee.
