Side by Side, a local, all volunteer non-profit
organization, will be the recipient of the second collection during the Labor
Day weekend masses. In its 13th year of operation, families in the
Lake Geneva School District are helped with rent, utilities, and prescription
medication. While there is no typical family that applies for assistance, many
people seek help due to the loss of a
job, a health crisis, or an unexpected financial event. Sie by Side helps to
keep individuals and their families in their homes, and the lights, gas and
water turned on. For many, Side by Side is their last hope. Sided by Side also
provides information about other community resources such as local food
pantries, the clothes closet, energy assistance, and Salvation Army. A new
program, Financial Coaching, strives to help clients develop goals to better
understand their finances.
Business meetings are the second Tuesday of the month at the First Congregational United
Church of Christ, 715 Wisconsin St. at 8 pm. Anyone interested in learning
about the organization is invited to attend. Individuals and families in the
Lake Geneva School District seeking assistance with rent, utilities, or prescription
medication are welcome to apply for help on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 PM at the same location.
Your financial assistance is greatly appreciated! Volunteers
are always welcome as well. To learn more about Side by Side or about becoming
