Nearly a dozen members and volunteers from IAM District 10 recently gave back to the Milwaukee community by volunteering at the Mother & Daughter Child Nurturing Center for the Next Door Foundation. Their mission is to enrich and enhance the social, emotional, and academic growth of children in partnership with parents and the community.
Volunteers painted five classrooms, giving them a much-needed facelift. IAM Locals 66, 873, 1406, and 2269 participated in the event. District 10 also contributed $150 towards the cost of supplies.
“Lending a helping hand to make a better environment for kids in schools is essential to the learning experience,” said IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Steven Galloway. “Our H.E.L.P.S. projects, throughout the Midwest Territory, continue to lead the way with our members serving community needs. My thanks go out to all involved in making the outcome a success.”
The Next Door Foundation provides early childhood education in Milwaukee, helping children and families build a brighter future filled with opportunity and success.
The IAM Midwest Territory began the “IAM H.E.L.P.S. in the Community” initiative in the spring of 2017 to provide essential assistance to residents in need. H.E.L.P.S. stands for Honoring, Engaging, Lifting, Providing and Servicing.
