Every year, our congregation gives the entire Christmas Eve offering away. This year, we are giving the offering to two local organizations that help people in our community access food and shelter.
Interchange Food Pantry, a food pantry that First Church help found in 1971 along with a group of neighboring churches, is committed to helping provide healthy food to low-income residents of Milwaukee in a compassionate and supportive environment. Every $1 you donate to Interchange buys $5 worth of high-quality food for pantry guests. https://interchangefoodpantry.org/
The Cathedral Center is a women’s shelter in Milwaukee, which provides emergency shelter to women and families, while working to end homelessness one life at a time. Your donation helps provide shelter, basic needs necessities, and life-changing case management services to 1,000 women and families with children each year. https://cathedral-center.org/
Because Christmas Eve service will be online this year, you can give to one or both of these organizations using our secure vendor and we will forward your donation to them.
