Street Angels is a mobile outreach organization that provides assistance to those experiencing homelessness in Milwaukee. Three days a week, the two outreach buses serve dinner to 100-240 individuals. Street Angels also provides clean clothes, blankets, and other essentials to the people they meet along their routes. On Saturday, April 6, Sunbeam Kids families will get together at the New Berlin Public Library from 1:30-3:00 pm to make tie blankets as a group which will be donated to Street Angels. 

What to expect:

We will be making fleece tie blankets which will be distributed to individuals experiencing homelessness during the Street Angels’ outreach. Tasks include cutting the fleece material and tying strips together.

Capacity & Age Recommendations:

This project is best for ages 8+ and we are able to include approximately 8 families from Sunbeam Kids. 

What to bring:

If you have a sharp pair of scissors (able to cut fleece material), please bring them along. 

What to wear:

Feel free to have kids wear their Sunbeam Kids shirts and bring their name tag lanyard to collect ribbons.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. 

This project is currently open to members* but we will be happy to open it up to guests if space remains approximately one week prior to the project date. Please only sign up if you know you can attend. We understand illness and emergencies do come up so if you register and can no longer attend, please let us know ASAP.
