MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin REALTORS® Foundation (WRF) generated funds to provide more than 56,000 meals during its “Team Up Against Hunger” week of June 14-20, 2021. The massive fundraising effort will help feed Wisconsin’s children who are out of school for the summer and cannot rely on school-provided meals. Contributions made by REALTORS® from across the state helped the WRF far exceed its initial fundraising goal for the week by more than 10,000 meals.
“While hunger is harmful to everyone, it can be especially devastating to children because of its potential for long-term consequences,” said Mike Spranger, WRF chair. “Partnering with an organization like Feeding Wisconsin means the Wisconsin REALTOR® community can reach children and make a real difference in every corner of the state. There are children who struggle with hunger in every community, and with more than 16,500 REALTORS®, there are REALTORS® in every community who can help.”
In 2018, the WRF launched a multi-year partnership with Feeding Wisconsin, a statewide association of the Feeding America food banks to help Wisconsin children who face hunger each day.
Since the beginning of the partnership, the WRF has donated more than 785,000 meals to Feeding Wisconsin.
