MPS donates and packs lunches for homeless shelter

MPS Employees and students unite to prepare and donate lunches Several dozen students and employees from MPS Central Services banded together this week to pack lunches for residents at the Guest House of Milwaukee. All of the bread, lunchmeat, cheese, fruit, and other lunch items were purchased though cash donations from MPS employees, which totaled nearly $600. Sandwiches were crafted by students in the Community Assessment Training Program, who are learning career skills that will help them directly transition to the workforce after graduation. Employees assisted with packing and also wrote friendly notes to the residents who would receive the lunches.

The Guest House of Milwaukee is Milwaukee's largest publicly funded homeless shelter and is located at 1216 N. 13th Street. It provides permanent housing, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and prevention services. Founded in 1982, the Guest House has been a leader in providing solutions to Milwaukee's homeless citizens for more than 30 years.
