After the oven malfunction at Hope House that caused a sprinkler system to engage and floor the kitchen, members of the community spread the word about Friedens time of need. MKE MomsBlog featured Friendens among their LoveMKE Projects, which aims to provide area moms ways to get involved in the community. Moms helped restock the pantry and feed residents while repairs took place.
“Provided Hot Meals – Hope House residents prepare their own meals in kitchen, but that is obviously off the table at the moment. So we partnered with a local, mom owned and operated business to bring them family-sized meals that are real crowd-pleasers. Cream City Casseroles is a meal order and delivery service and owner Jess is thrilled to be a part of helping out Hope House. Our community came together and purchased meals that feeds 6-8 people and Cream City Casseroles worked with Hope House to select their desired meal and coordinate delivery. Each large pan of food is $32 and feeds a crowd.
As of March 30th, our community has donated 10 large casseroles plus desserts to Hope House! Each large casserole feeds up to 8 people, so it’s safe to say we provided 72 meals. At the time of deliveries, Hope House had 27 guests, so these donated meals met their dinner needs for ALL of their guests for 2 full days, plus leftovers/seconds.”
Thank you for your generosity!
