Family Promise of Monroe County is an affiliate of a national organization to help homeless children and their families turn their lives around. Hands of Hope, which was started by a few Tomah residents after the news story last November about homeless students, was researching the best way to help kids and found this national organization. Community residents from Tomah and Sparta began attending monthly meeting and we've been working on getting Family Promise of Monroe County up and running! We will be doing a donation drive on Fri. Dec. 7th from 4-8pm and on Sat. Dec. 8th from 8am-noon. Our locations will be at Gillette Park and Veterans Memorial Park in Tomah. We will be accepting toiletries, outerwear for children and adults and cash donations.
