Caring for the Community During These Troubling Times
As this unprecedented event unfolds around us, the Cove Realty team is concerned, not only for the welfare of their friends and family, but also for the community that they love and support. During these trying times, as individuals and families struggle to not only stay safe and healthy but to also prepare for the future, the help and support of others is vital.
One of the greatest characteristics of Kenosha and its surrounding neighborhoods is the incredible sense of community and the willingness to help others. This is something the Cove team speaks to frequently with new, incoming home buyers. We couldn’t be more proud of Kenosha’s residents, outreach programs and non-profit support organizations.
In light of this, the Cove team wants to encourage everyone to remember some of the vital community organizations that are in place to help area residents, who are truly in need of your help during this world-wide crisis.
- Food donations needed.
The Shalom Center is calling ALL Hope Builders to help stock the pantry to feed youth and families in need right. They’re currently accepting a variety of food and beverage donations to help feed the large population they’re serving. Click here to find out what you can donate now.
- Meal programs volunteers and donations needed.
The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha is a meal pick-up site for Kenosha Unified School District‘s food program during the coming weeks.
If you or your business is interested in purchasing or providing a grab-and-go dinner, please contact Jake McGhee at [email protected]. Otherwise, it is simple to make a monetary donation to the club online here.
- Monetary donations needed!
The Kenosha Literacy Council is a non-profit organization that teaches reading, writing and speaking skills to adults so they and their families can achieve financial independence, good health and greater involvement in our community.
During the days and weeks ahead they have a plan in place to provide support and learning opportunities to KLC students and their families. This includes internet access, computers and tablets to use for homework and other needs, and healthy snacks for those with limited access to food.
We hope you’ll consider supporting KLC in raising funds for additional food and supplies that are needed during this time here.
- Volunteers Needed!
KAFASI provides residents of Kenosha County with programs that meet vital needs within the community. Aging Services programs provide nutritious meals, affordable transportation, respite for caregivers, memory care programming, and solutions to loneliness for homebound people. Family Services programs support parents of all ages while addressing the needs of families with children who are at risk of abuse or neglect. Essential skills are taught through casework, as well as the Teen Parent, Parenting Class and Anger Management programs.
KAFASI is in need of volunteers to continue delivering these vital services to our community. Please enroll if you can assist.
Volunteers who are unable to deliver can also volunteer to help combat loneliness and isolation within our community with phone calls to homebound seniors.
