This year we will once again be collecting Stockings of Hope for those experiencing homelessness in Milwaukee. Also, with so many of our friends receiving help with housing over the last year we will be collecting Baskets of Hope with household items to help them along on their new journey.
To be someone's secret Santa this year please choose the type and quantity of the gift you would like to provide above and click on "register" to sign up.
All assembled stockings and gifts can be dropped off at the Street Angel head quarters located at 445 W. Oklahoma Ave on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10 am and Noon. Door is next to our buses parked in the lot and we are upstairs.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at Info@streetangelsmke.org.
