Milwaukee area continues flood clean up

United Way of Greater Milwaukee recently awarded $50,000 to the Hunger Task Force to provide emergency food to flood disaster victims. The funding will help ensure food pantries, shelters and meal programs in areas hardest hit by storms will be fully stocked.
“Our community has been profoundly affected by the recent floods,” said Mary Lou Young, president and chief executive officer of the United Way of Greater Milwaukee. “The United Way continues to move quickly to ensure dollars are distributed to help those in need.
Programs that will benefit from the donation include the Jewish Community Center and the All Saints Catholic Church Food Pantry which sustained complete flood damage, and the Hmong American Friendship Association will also receive replacement of damaged food.
Pantries that escaped flood damage will be supported with a strong supply of food delivered by Hunger Task Force at no cost.
“We are thankful to the hard working volunteers who cleaned up and got back to work so quickly to serve those in need,” said Sherri Tussler, executive director of Hunger Task Force. “And a hearty thanks to United Way and all United Way donors for this generous gift.”
