Making a Difference in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Chapter, Make A Difference, 2013On Saturday, November 2, 2013,  HOPE worldwide Milwaukee Chapter Volunteers took to the streets of Southeastern, Wisconsin to make a differnce by serving seniors for the 21st Annual "Make A Difference Day," in partnership with the Interfaith Older Adult Programs and Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee.   Volunteers of the HOPE worldwide Milwaukee Chapter were part of the volunteer team of 1,120.  

HOPE worldwide volunteers served in 30 of the 270 homes to help older adults prepare for the upcoming winter months by raking leaves, cleaning windows, clearing gardens, trimming hedges, putting up storm windows, getting leaves out of the gutters along with many other small projects.

The event began with an official kickoff and continental breakfast for all the volunteers and partners.  FOX 6 News Early Morning Show on site to greet and conduct live interviews with our HOPE worldwide volunteers to help to promote quality of life for  Older Adults in our community for highlights.  Go To: http://fox6now.com/category/wakeup 

Join us for Make A Difference Day "Spring Cleaning" - "Day of Hope" Saturday, May 3, 2014 8 a.m - 9 a.m Kick-off breakfast at Washington Park Senior Center 4420 W. Vliet Street. Milwaukee, WI.  We need 100 volunteers.

Larry Hisle:  Baseball Legend and Community Hero
On Wednesday, November 9, 2011, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
ran a front page feature titled "The Larry Hisle Story – Community," which describes his positive impact on the residents of the local community. Reporter Gary Damato discussed in brief Larry Hisle, the Milwaukee Brewers and the HOPE worldwide Milwaukee Chapter partnership and bringing hope and changing lives.
 
Mr. Hisle volunteered as a keynote speaker and participated with us in the MLK Day volunteer events on January 16, 2012. The holiday weekend marks the annual volunteer event when the American Red Cross and HOPE worldwide Milwaukee Chapter volunteers talk to their neighbors about fire safety and prevention, and reminding Milwaukee residents that home fires are one disaster that can be prevented.
