Virtual Donation Drive Supporting
Sojourner Family Peace Center
Organized by the EWL Community Involvement Committee

Domestic violence doesn’t stop for Coronavirus. In fact, domestic violence reports to the Milwaukee Police Department were up 28% in the early weeks of April compared to the same period in 2019. Domestic violence shelters and victim services remain open. The EWL Community Involvement committee is hosting a virtual donation drive throughout the month of May supporting Sojourner Family Peace Center, which provides education, advocacy and resources to keep families safe from domestic violence.

There are several ways to support Sojourner, or we encourage you to support one of the many other nonprofit organizations working to combat domestic violence. Below are Sojourner's current most-needed items:

    1. Pillows (Standard size for shelter beds)
    2. Plus sized pajamas
    3. Paper items for shelter (plates, napkins, etc.) as we continue to avoid close contact during meal times in shelter.
    4. Sanitizing surface cleaner
    5. Hand sanitizer
    6. Masks (cloth and disposable are both welcome)
    7. Disposable gloves
    8. You can also view Sojourner's Amazon Wish List here

Preference is shipping directly to Sojourner from an online retailer such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc. However, curbside drop-off for items that do not come from an online retailer will be accepted. Please note that your donation is on behalf of TEMPO's Emerging Women Leaders.
