Milwaukee restaurants support grass roots clean water effort

Eight Milwaukee-area restaurants will participate in the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s nationwide UNICEF Tap Project during World Water Week, March 21 to March 27. The UNICEF Tap Project is a campaign to provide clean water to children around the world, and invites restaurant patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free.
“The UNICEF Tap Project brings to Milwaukee an incredibly simple concept to encourage local citizens to help bring clean and safe water to the children of the world,” said Jeff McClellan, Tap Project volunteer and partner at Marx McClellan Thrun, a local advertising agency located in the Third Ward.  “With Milwaukee’s initiative to establish the city as a national water hub, it makes sense for Milwaukee-area restaurants and citizens to participate in the UNICEF Tap Project. I am glad that so many restaurants and volunteers agree it is our duty to use tap water—our single most bountiful natural resource—to reduce child mortality.”
Local participating restaurants include Café Hollander in Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, Café Centraal, The Wicked Hop, County Clare, Lucky Liu’s, Sala de Pranzo and Miss Katie’s Diner.  All proceeds from this year’s Tap Project will go to the countries and areas UNICEF has identified as among the most in need including: Togo, Central African Republic, Vietnam, Guatemala and Haiti.
This is the third year for the Tap Project and Milwaukee’s first year participating in the effort.
