Project #17: Wisconsin, Hebron House of Hospitality

Beginning on March 15, we move onward to the state of Wisconsin, and to making a variety of items for Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc. in Waukesha. There are two shelter houses in Waukesha that are run by Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc.; these are the Hebron House at 812 N East Ave, Waukesha, WI and the Siena House at 1519 Summit Ave, Waukesha, WI. Hebron can serve 40 families at one time, and Siena can serve 37 at one time. I am told they are always full, and always in need of donations.

This project was suggested by AuntieTrixKnits26 on Ravelry, and she will be acting as our coordinator and mail recipient.

One of the wonderful things about Hebron House is that they have a very good website which includes a wish list. We can make anything we like from the wish list, which includes:
Hats, scarves, cowls, mittens, socks, slippers, washcloths, lapghans, and many more items.

Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc. shares their mission statement and philosophy on their website:
“The mission of Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc. is to provide emergency housing and related services to people in transition with the basic needs of shelter, food and personal support.” …“Hebron House of Hospitality, Inc. is operated always with the purpose to provide housing and food to any person of any faith, nationality, sex, age or disability. We strive to provide this service in a non-judgmental atmosphere.”

DEADLINE:
Deadline to have these items received by the project coordinator is April 15, so please allow appropriate mail time. She will be delivering to the facility just after April 15.

As stated above, our volunteer coordinator for this project is AuntieTrixKnits26. Donations can be mailed to:

This project has finished. If you would like to send an item, please email me for the mailing address.

Please let me know if there are any questions, or if I have left out any vital information for this project. Thank you again for your participation!
