Meaningful Meals


Grab and Go Healthy Snack Collection:

When we initially approached the Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s ER about receiving Meaningful Meals from our collection, we received the suggestion for donations of healthy snacks for the staff who are often too busy to stop for a meals. This heartfelt note of thanks speaks volumes regarding the impact our members have had by taking the time to do a little extra shopping and delivery to the Club.


Dear Holly Ryan,

On behalf of the associates and physicians serving Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s, I want to thank you for your generous donation of free snacks on May 11th to our caregivers. Providing food to our team members not only allows your organization to express gratitude and encouragement to our team, but it also uplifts their spirits.

Words cannot express the level of gratitude and appreciation of our organization to the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin. Your commitment to the community and our healthcare professionals during this unprecedented time is immeasurable.

Please extend our thanks to your team who made this possible. You are a much needed beacon of light in this unknown time. May God bless you and your teams.

Snack donations are still needed in these difficult times!   Our WCW collection is expanded to include the ER departments at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital - and also to offer healthy snacks to families at Kathy’s House, which supports families experiencing cancer.


Other supplies being collected: yarn and all-occasion greeting card covers – Your collection will provide some productive focus for the women inmates at the Milwaukee Women’s Correctional Center as they begin to transition to life at the conclusion of their sentencing. The inmates knit and crochet assorted items that are donated to groups such as the Christ Child Society. Greeting card covers are used to make collage-style cards for families and friends of inmates. Both projects provide creative relief and create bridges to the community. 


Collection donations can be delivered to the Club vestibule, where there are boxes for each collection.
