As Chair of the KW Cares Committee (www.kwcares.org), I am heading up the Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser.
When: October 6 from 12-5pm
Where: Ten Pin Alley
Fundraising Why?: IHN or www.IHNMadison.org.
About IHN: This is a restart program for homeless families with children. Many of us can turn a blind eye to an adult that is living on the street, but I never knew how many of our own LOCAL homeless are children.
IHN helps people start over; from the hand-made blanket and pillow that people get on the first night in their care to resume and rent-record assistance. This program is so successful at helping people become contributing members, that several have joined IHN as treasured employees. Their stories put my own life into a different perspective.
I have been very blessed. I have never been faced with living on the street. By supporting a program that is determined to assist only those that are ready to help themselves, I feel that it is the best combination of a win-win possible.
Feel free to join in or you can donate to sponsor a bowler.
