After a 25-day fundraising campaign, The Saukville Community Food Pantry officially raised more than $60,000 in contributions. The donations will be placed in the food pantry’s capital fund and will lead them closer to occupancy of the former Tri-Par building at the corner of South Main Street and Green Bay Avenue.
Executive director and founder Mark Gierach shared his amazement at the way the community came together for the cause. “I’m simply beside myself. I am truly taken aback at how so many local businesses came forth to help us make this campaign a success. We’re truly blessed.”
James Schowalter, president and COO of Port Washington State Bank, echoed the enthusiasm. “There are so many wonderful families and companies that participated in this campaign. While we are happy to have spearheaded this effort with the $25,000 match, we couldn’t be where we are today and we couldn’t give what we give without local businesses.”
