Love and Charity Mission in Racine, Wisconsin

With all the talk of raising the minimum wage we thought we'd give you some facts about life in America today.

Today 37 million Americans live in poverty. Many families must choose which of the basic necessities of life they will provide for their families. They must choose among food, housing, medical treatment and clothing.

All over this great nation members of varied communities are pulling together to help one another. Farmers are forming cooperatives to save their farms and to supply fruits and vegetables to their neighbors. Volunteers are walking young students to school to protect them from violence. After school programs are teaching children valuable life skills in order that they may be able to be productive, self-sufficient citizens in the future. Many are getting the remedial reading and math skills needed to be able to find suitable employment.

One group has been working to help sustain the less fortunate members of the community in Racine, Wisconsin, Love and Charity Mission.

Under the spirit inspired leadership of Mrs. Louise Hunter, affectionately known as Mother Hunter, the mission has been feeding, clothing and supplying housing for untold hundreds, probably thousands for more than 40 years.

Today the Love and Charity Mission provides meals, afterschool programs and tutoring as well as computer instruction for those in need.

Make a donation of your time or money to help this worthwhile effort.
