HEBRON HOUSE INC
November 21, 2011

When my team at work was awarded a prize of $25,000 to be given to a charity, we looked for a local organization that benefitted our local community. I recommended Hebron House of Hospitality which runs shelters and assists homeless people in Waukesha (WI) County. What better use of our prize money could there be than to help those who have nothing, who have no place to live and no means for basic survival.

My work team has made a commitment to partner with the Hebron House throughout the year. We have taken up collections of food and toiletries, given cash donations, and held a clean-up/fix-up day where we painted, repaired, landscaped and cleaned three of the shelters with a team of 50 volunteers.

The people at Hebron House are compassionate and dedicated to their mission. They provide the basic needs for those who most need it, and assist them through the maze of bureaucracy to help them find a more permanent lifestyle.

Our donations and volunteer efforts were greatly appreciated by the Hebron House staff and clients.

The Great!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I was very pleased and proud to have organized the clean-up/fix-up day. Our 50 volunteers made a huge impact on the physicsal appearance of the buildings and improved morale of staff and residents.
