As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
They could be your neighbors. They could be your family. They could be your friends. They have been providing temporary, monetary support to the West Allis community for 45 years. They brought you the Western Days Parade for over 40 years. Their largest, annual fundraiser was West Allis Western Days. They believe in people, programs, and progress in the city of West Allis. They are the volunteers of the West Allis Charities, Inc.
They may be a local, charitable organization, but they pack a punch when it comes to providing support for residents and community programs. 45 years and $1.4 million later, they are like the Energizer Bunny...they keep going and going. The West Allis Charities has been positively managing change in their organization since the retirement of West Allis Western Days. Their core team has been working toward increasing volunteer membership, reorganizing their leadership roles / responsibilities, identifying new fundraisers (such as Music By The Mile), using a new & consistent branding strategy (including logo, website, sponsorship categories, & blog), and have a Five Project Focus covering the growing needs in the West Allis community.
