Thanks, Milwaukee Women's Shelter!

In March, LINC committee members helped sort clothing at the Milwaukee Women's Shelter, run through United Way's program partner, Community Advocates. They also helped to sort materials and supplies in the shelter's storage areas to prepare for future donations. LINC would like to recognize and thank the Milwaukee Women's Shelter for their support for victims of domestic violence and abuse. Thank you for hosting us!
