WE NEED A LITTLE HELP. YOU GAME? IT'S EASY!!

BulletinBoard

WHO KNOWS THEIR COMMUNITY REALLY WELL? We're about to print some posters for a grassroots campaign. We need to get the posters up throughout the communities, large and small, of Waukesha County. So, what do we need now?... Solid, good-faith estimates.

It's easy-- simply take a few moments and visually walk in your mind down the streets of your main business district. Count the businesses that might allow a poster to go up. Then, email us that number, your name and the community/area involved, to: andy_smith@usc.salvationarmy.org

WE DON'T WASTE PRECIOUS DOLLARS AT THE SALVATION ARMY. :-) Sure, we could just "print a bunch" and try to get them up, but let's do this efficiently and with some thought. You game? Please don't delay-- we need these numbers pretty quickly: Again, email as soon as you can to: andy_smith@usc.salvationarmy.org As always, THANK YOU!!

HOW'D YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT? BUT, DID YOU SLEEP OUTSIDE?!

MensShelter

Nights are getting colder. How would you have slept in last week's overnight deluge of rain . . . if you were a homeless man out doors? Your donations support our operating the largest men's homeless shelter in Waukesha County. We sleep 30-40 men per night, practically EVERY NIGHT. Did you know that? The men .. age 20s to 70s .. can get a hot shower, breakfast, a free hot meal on Tu, Th and Sa evenings, they can wash their clothes, and they can get a good night's sleep in a safe, clean, well-managed facility. It is free of smokers, drugs and alcohol. Your monetary support of our worik, your volunteer support of our work and your prayer support of our work-- founded in Waukesha in 1894-- are all blessings. WE CANNOT BE SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT ALL THREE. With Christian Scripture as our guiding principle, we serve those most in need. Please help us.

This Fall, each is working on shooting/presenting a video production. Zoromski is a nationally award-winning TV journalist and university Journalism instructor.

A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF OUR HOME IN WAUKESHA

CorpsAerial

YOU JUST NEVER KNOW. A local History club, interested in Waukesha, wanted to take aerial shots of downtown and asked if they could please launch a licensed drone from our parking lot just down the hill from the hospital. With proper approvals, we said yes-- and they sent us this! If you've never had the opportunity to visit the Waukesha Corps, our three-story headquarters building was constructed with donated funds in 1996. It houses offices, the Men's Homeless Shelter, the Food Pantry, the Dining Room and Kitchen where we serve three free evening meals each week, our Worship Chapel, our Youth Ministry offices and more! Tours are available and may be scheduled by any local civic, church or school organization. EVERYONE IS WELCOME at our building.
