KHS Cookbook Sale and Raffle Raise Money for Local Charities

Posted on: December 29th, 2011 by Knueppel HealthCare Services No Comments

Recently KHS sold special in-house-created cookbooks and raffle tickets to raise nearly $1000 for the Milwaukee Rescue Mission (MRM) and the Hunger Task Force.

The brunch-type-foods cookbooks were developed by CEO Cindy Ciardo and divide recipes into two categories: egg-based dishes and baked french toast dishes.

The MRM provides a comprehensive approach to helping Milwaukee’s poor and homeless with programs that help heal the body, mind and soul. Founded in 1893 by a group of local Christian businessmen and community leaders, MRM offers support and education to the community through its various facilities.

Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force operates from the belief that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity. They have been a consistent voice for the hungry, promoting socially sound policies that could end hunger in our community. A group of parents worried about children going to school hungry founded the organization in 1974.

As you reach out to support others in the community, know that the Milwaukee Rescue Mission and Hunger Task Force appreciate your generosity.

Charles Dudley Warner wrote: “The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.” KHS carries numerous items appropriate for your loved ones, any time of the year. But maybe, just maybe, the sight of that awkwardly wrapped shower chair under the tree this December will bring a smile to someone’s eyes.
