On Dec. 16, 2023,Cinda Poppe, Patty Silah and LuAnn Roman were on site at the SOS Center, 46nd and North Ave in Milwaukee to present the $20,000 check to their Executive Director, Lydia Beasley. This, the second to last grant distribution for this biennium, will be used to more effectively reach the high school youth with their Designed for Success program. While there, the LWML reps were treated to a grand tour of the building including The Purple Room which is a tribute to the loving support of all LWML sisters over the years of their operation beginning with Ken and Arlene Greve in 1982. The current location serves as a hub for other churches to rally around as, together, the mission is to help and support those in need with a clear witness of Jesus as Creator and Sustainer of all life. Check out their website for more information ( and get excited about volunteering if you are in the area. To conclude the day, refreshments were shared along with many stories of happiness in how this agency has been the hands and feet of Jesus these many years.
