Wauwatosa, Wis.-based WaterStone Bank is hosting a school supply drive through Aug. 12 to benefit children served by the Sojourner Family Peace Center.
WaterStone Bank is collecting new folders, notebooks, pens and backpacks at all 14 of its branches.
The Sojourner Family Peace Center, which hosts the drive on an annual basis, is the largest domestic violence prevention and intervention service nonprofit in Wisconsin. Sojourner has an Amazon wish list for people who want to donate large items or give virtually.
“The families we serve often struggle to meet basic needs,” said Sojourner President and CEO Carmen Pitre. “Providing school supplies for kids impacted by family violence meets two critical goals: setting up at-risk kids for academic success and easing the financial burden for survivors. We are grateful for WaterStone Bank’s commitment to strengthening families through education and community development initiatives.”
