About the New Berlin Food Pantry – a 501 (c)(3) organization
The New Berlin Women’s Club started distribution of federal food in 1986. In order to continue receiving this distribution they needed a regular location and weekly operations. The club moved into a space at Hickory Grove in 1989 and focused on running a food pantry. The pantry moved into its current location in 2007 and serves clients living in New Berlin, Brookfield and Elm Grove. Funds were donated by a local resident to build the garage for storage. The pantry provides Easter baskets (thanks to NB Lioness), Thanksgiving turkeys (thanks to NB police and fire), Christmas hams (thanks to NB police and fire) and school supplies (thanks to NB Lioness and Holy Apostles). The pantry is staffed 100% by volunteers. They serve clients on Wednesdays from 12 noon to 5:15 pm and accept donations on that day from 9 am to 5 pm. They are located at 14750 W. Cleveland Avenue in the community center. They express their gratitude for strong community support from businesses, churches, school groups, service groups, the local police and fire departments and individuals.
Thank you for your contributions!
Every year during the month of May, The Guest House of Milwaukee hosts “UNDY 500” – a donation drive where community-based teams compete against each other to collect the most packages of NEW Men’s and Women’s underwear, bras and undershirts in all sizes. These items help to restore hope and dignity to the people they are helping.
The race has finished and the final counts are in!
First, we'd like to say THANK YOU for providing these basic needs items for our guests experiencing homelessness. Overall, we received almost 4,000 items! We truly could not do this important work without your support!
Congratulations to the 3 champion teams:
- Faith-based category - team ** ST. ELIZABETH ANN SETON **
- Business category - team FIRST WEBER
- Friends & Family category - team START YOUR ENGINES!
The 2021 overall campaign champion with over 1,000 points is......
** ST. ELIZABETH ANN SETON **
Congratulations team St. Elizabeth Ann Seton! Thank you, as always, for participating in one of the most successful Undy 500 campaigns we've had! We can't wait to see you on the track next year!
In our migrant community, just like others, many have lost their jobs. However, unlike most of us, many migrants and their families will not be receiving a stimulus check, even though many pay into our income tax system. The Migrant Ministry is supporting the Migrant MKE Food Drive to help these families not go hungry. We are collecting non-perishable food items such as flour, oil, beans, rice, cereal and canned goods. These can be either dropped off at 13320 W North Lane, New Berlin, or if you need it picked up, please contact Joanna Boey at 262-853-4033 or Send us a message.
