The Pfister donates food for local nonprofits

The Pfister donates food for local nonprofits

March 18, 2020

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to develop, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County’s local nonprofit partners are experiencing increased demand for emergency food, medical equipment, cleaning supplies, and staff time.

Luckily, our corporate partners have stepped up in big ways to support the local nonprofit community. 

Due to event cancellations, the kitchen staff at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee had plenty of fresh food on their hands with no one to serve it to. 

United Way picked up the food (the donations filled two vans!) and distributed it to several of our local nonprofit partners, including Cathedral Center, Guest House of Milwaukee, Walker’s Point Youth and Family Center, Sojourner Family Peace Center, and The Salvation Army. 

"One of our top priorities is making sure we get more food to more agencies and homes," said Nicole Angresano, Vice President of Community Impact at United Way. "It is a testament to The Marcus Corporation's community commitment that they reached out to us with this extraordinary opportunity -- resulting in shelters getting some much needed fresh and high quality food for their residents and clients."

Thank you to The Marcus Corporation and The Pfister Hotel for this generous donation to keeping our community healthy during this uncertain time.
