    2020 Walk for Children

    A Virtual Experience
    May 18-22

    To keep everyone safe and healthy in the current climate, we’re going virtual with the 2020 Walk for Children!

    We invite you, family and friends to safely “Walk a Mile for a Child” to support Next Door’s critical early childhood education programming for central city families. Your support right now is especially important as we work to continue educating our students from home while ensuring their families have basic needs.

    Our goal is to reach 1,400 total miles walked — that’s one mile for each child at Next Door!  The event culminates on May 22nd with an online celebration program for all registered participants and Next Door families.

  • Holiday Gift Giving

    Holiday Gift Giving

    The holiday season should be a special time for all Milwaukee children and families. To help make that happen, we invite community members, businesses and other groups to donate gifts to Next Door. You can adopt a Next Door family or classroom. We will provide an age-appropriate list of gift ideas and arrange a time when you can deliver the presents. You will be giving a family great joy during this time of the year!

    If you have a question about our annual holiday gift giving program, contact Next Door’s Volunteer Coordinator, Martina Stevens, at 414-999-2529, or mstevens@nextdoormke.org
