Beginning Monday, Aug. 16 and running through Saturday, Aug. 28, La Causa’s Crisis Nursery & Respite Center will host a donation drive for children in need.
Truly unique to Milwaukee, the Crisis Nursery and Respite Center is a 24- hour free emergency shelter for children during times of family crisis. It is designed to prevent abuse and neglect, provide a safe haven for innocent children, and offer resources to parents who have little support. By acting as a last line of defense for children in vulnerable, often dangerous, situations, the Crisis Nursery and Respite Center has, for 20 years, played a role in creating stability in the community it resides and stemming the cycle of abuse and violence in Milwaukee.
The children we help need:
- Diapers/baby wipes
- New/gently used kid’s clothing & shoes
- New/gently used kid’s games & toys
- New socks and under wear
- Craft supplies
