Done in a Day: McKey Club Gift Distribution
Location:
Date & Time: December 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
More Information

Are you ready for the holidays? We get so caught up in the hustle and bustle that we may forget about the many people in our community who don’t have the resources to celebrate. 100 years ago, Douglas McKey decided to do something to help people in Milwaukee by getting together a group of his friends to distribute gifts to needy family and seniors. This Milwaukee tradition has grown and expanded over the years along with the support of the Rotary Club of Milwaukee. This year the Douglas F. McKey Christmas Club will again deliver gifts carrying on a Milwaukee tradition that began in 1917.

 

We’re looking for Rotarian’s to help on December 18th  from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. helping to  distribute the gifts to families and seniors throughout Milwaukee  See the McKey Club  website for more details:  www.mckeychristmasclub.org or contact Rotarian Janine Kolbeck at 414-944-9114 with questions

 

Best wishes for the holidays.

Volunteers will help to ensure future tree canopy diversity within the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum.

The trees are now at the size to need the next level of protection to ensure their survivability within the Arboretum.

 

Volunteers will help to secure the mesh tree protection and stakes around the trees identified by the Urban Ecology Center’s Forester within the Arboretum lands. Wear appropriate clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty!   Bring gloves and a mask. We will work 6 feet apart.
