Happy Mother's Day!


This Sunday we celebrated mothers everywhere. Whether you were a new mom celebrating your first Mother's Day, or you were recognizing the sacrifices of your own mother-women everywhere were honored.


Mothers, or even as women, we are taught empathy and compassion for others-children in particular. They are our future and the most vulnerable people in society. We all want our children to have it better than we did. This hope is likely what inspired our founding members to choose children as the focus of Service League's mission. Last weekend on May 5, 2013 we held our inaugural Basics for Babies Baby Shower. Here we gathered sleepers and monetary donations for Pack 'n Plays for the newly founded Safe Sleep Coalition. The Back to School Store is just around the corner and over 1,500 children will receive the things they need to be successful during the upcoming school year.


As we wrap-up another Mother's Day, hats off to you for all you do working to provide both the children and their mothers/families with the resources they need to be successful in life and in school. Your support of Service League and our programs ensures these families can focus on loving their children and keeping them on the right path.


I hope you found yourself surrounded by your loved ones and felt extra appreciated yesterday and always.


Very Truly Yours,

Courtney Peirce


Service League's First Baby Shower a success

Service League of Green Bay held its inaugural Baby Shower Fundraiser on May 5, 2013, in an effort to support the organization's Basics for Babies program!
It was a fun afternoon, and we received 60 footed sleepers, two full size pack 'n plays, as well as monetary donations to help aid this program. In all, this fundraiser will supply more than half of what the program will require for it to succeed during the upcoming year!
We would like to extend a huge thank you to our guest speaker Andrea Schultz, who came from the Safe Sleep Collaborative and the Center for Childhood Safety to talk about what their organization does in the community. We would also like to share our appreciation of Randi Fay who very graciously sold copies of her wonderful CD at this event, to help benefit Service League. 
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our inaugural Basics for Babies "baby shower" - we could not have done it without you!


If you were unable to attend but would still like to donate footed sleepers, or monetarily, please contact Gail Limoni 920-606-3374,
