On Wednesday, December 23, Elmbrook Schools, the Waukesha County Food Pantry, and the Brookfield Elm Grove Interfaith Network (BEGIN) provided free meals, outdoor winter clothing, and baby supplies for families in our community. Families received three fresh Farm to Family meals provided by the Waukesha County Food Pantry, breakfast and lunch meals provided by the Elmbrook Schools Food Service Team, and outdoor winter clothing donated by members of BEGIN and the Elmbrook Schools community.
"It's truly remarkable how the Elmbrook community responds to help each other throughout the year, but especially at this crucial time," said Dr. Tanya Fredrich, Assistant Superintendent for Teaching & Learning - Student Services. "The community service opportunity came together quickly and the flexibility of all those involved in making this a reality is tremendously appreciated."
The effort helped to provide food and winter clothing for over 375 individuals in the community this holiday season. Thank you to the staff from the Elmbrook Schools and Waukesha County Food Pantry, as well as the leadership and volunteers from the Interfaith Network that helped coordinate this incredible outreach.
