Every year, our Components Company family picks an outstanding organization to support for our internal holiday fundraiser. This year, we have chosen to raise donations for the Sojourner Family Peace Center.
About The Center
Sojourner Family Peace Center partners with many national, international and Wisconsin-area organizations so that it can provide support to those in need.
The center has been an active partner with Alliance for HOPE International since 2016. Other partners include the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Police Department Sensitive Crimes Unit, Milwaukee Public Schools, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office and Aurora Healthcare Abuse Response Services.
The center’s programming includes crisis housing, system advocacy and other means of support for individuals and families. Sojourner Family Peace Center also advocates for domestic abuse victims by offering interventions and shelter.
While cash donations are always welcome, there are many tangible items that Sojourner Family Peace Center has indicated that it needs. Those items include:
- adult and children’s bath robes
- sippy cups
- baby bottles
- diapers (size 4,5, and 6) and training pants
- clothing (all ages and genders)
- care products / toiletries (eg: shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc)
- socks, undergarments, pajamas and slippers (all sizes)
- maternity clothing
- blankets, pillows, sheets, and comforters
- school supplies
- gift cards to Target, Pick n Save, and Walmart
- towels and washcloths
- over-the-counter cold medicine, Tylenol, and cough drops
Donations will be taken leading up to and during Components Company’s holiday party on Friday, Dec. 13. Sojourner Family Peace Center asks that all items are new and not used. They also prefer the items to be unwrapped.
While this is technically an internal fundraiser, if you’d like to help us support Sojourner Family Peace Center, you can drop off items at our Brookfield location during business hours on or before Dec. 13. Our address is 3320 Intertech Dr, Brookfield, WI 53045. Again, cash donations will be accepted as well.
We at Components Company are proud to support Sojourner Family Peace Center this holiday season and we hope to make many people’s Christmas a bit brighter!
