Wisconsin Metal Parts recently celebrated its first annual brat fry fundraiser for the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative on Saturday, June 26th at Nettie’s Irish Pub. MHVI was suggested by a Wisconsin Metal Parts employee who has many family members who have served in the military, so they felt a personal connection with the cause. Furthermore, multiple members of the Wisconsin Metal Parts workforce are veterans themselves! Employees, friends, and family all joined for some delicious food, drinks, raffles, a bags tournament, as well as open horseshoe and bocce ball! Not only did everyone have a great time, but we also successfully raised over $3,000 for MHVI! This money will go directly towards providing assistance to homeless and at-risk veterans along with their families across Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative was founded and has been run by veterans since 2008. MHVI offers consistent one-on-one assistance in developing short and long-term solutions for housing, medical care, clothing, food, and transportation. They strive to fulfill what other programs often miss and have six unique programs:
