St. Joseph Parish Teams with Wisconsin We Care

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Integrity R.E. Broker 55289-90

I think sometimes we all tend to get so wrapped up in the stresses and struggles of everday life that we lose perspective of the smallest blessings that find their way to us.

Military support

When I learned of a service project being done at my church, I knew that I wanted to get the word out so that as many people as possible could assist in getting some much needed items to our military personnel --most of which are things we just assume will be available to us as we need them.

Wisconsin We Care is an organization that accepts food and other items from various businesses and individuals, packages them and then sends them to Wisconsin military units in Irag and Afghanistan. You can find out more information about this organization at

St. Joseph Parish in Grafton is setting up a drop-off point in their parking lot on Saturday, May 2, 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Cash donations to help cover shipping will also be accepted. Those checks can be made payable to "Veterans Day Parade of Milwaukee," and should have "Wisconsin We Care" written in the memo line.

Below is a list of items requested by the troops. Those with an asterisk are in short supply.

*White socks

Batteries (AA & AAA

*Canned pasta

*Tuna Kits

Canned beef stew

*Canned fruit


Hygiene products (non-aerosol)

Canned cheese spread



*Shaving razors

Canned dips for chips

Non-aerosol shaving cream

Hard candy


Snack/power bars

Beef jerky

*Instant coffee

*Powdered drinks

Crossword/Word search puzzles

Playing cards/DVDs/magazines

Items can be dropped off in the parking lot near the main entrance. If you have questions or would like assistance in picking up your items, please call Ann Wissmueller, 262-227-3347.

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Barb -- The parish is pretty excited about this. Plus the youth are getting involved, as well, which is always good to see!
