Monthly Charity

Our community is important to us and through the years we have supported local charities and causes. In late 2009 we decided to take this even further and actively support a  specific charity each month. Gilles matches your donations dollar for dollar, and 100% of the monies we collect go to the charity. Due to the generous contributions from our wonderful and caring customers and those from Gilles's, this program has been a terrific success. Thank you for helping us give back to those in need in our community!

If you have a suggestion for a charity for us to highlight, please let us know by using this link. When choosing a charity we focus on those that help people directly and have administrative costs of 10% or less.

The Monthly Charity for February is Mr. Bob's Under the Bridge. Find out more about their great work at mrbobsunderthebridge.org.

 

 

 

Mr. Bob's Under the Bridge fosters a community of compassion and friendship by providing basic necessities such as clothing and hygiene products to the homeless, those who need support, and the surrounding Milwaukee community.

Mr. Bob's prides itself on being a mobile organization. Not only does our truck allow us to help our friends at different locations, but our four-stall shower trailer can also follow the outreach truck to offer a safe and place to bathe. No matter where they are needed, we can provide services to our friends. We have been building a family of volunteers, who embody our culture of serving others, and committing to the well-being of the homeless and the hurting for over 15 years.

September 2007: Mr. Bob's Under the Bridge started with 6 backpacks and open hearts for distribution to our friends in the city.

2012: Mr. Bob's became a 501(C)3 to better serve our friends through outreach and compassion.

July 2019: Mr. Bob's launched a mobile shower-trailer to provide a hygienic option for our friends.

January1st, 2023: Mr. Bob's joined the Ozaukee Nonprofit Center and rented a new space to better serve our friends.

Every Saturday morning, we have an outreach. Items such as clothes, hygiene kits, and snacks are distributed at each location. Our volunteers all work together to make sure our friends get the resources they need. Our mission is to let our friends know that we care. We want everyone to leave with a smile.

Our mission is to serve others. By providing our time and energy, we make a positive impact on our friends' lives. We are a volunteer-run organization, so we are beyond thankful for our volunteers. It takes many kind and generous people to make Mr. Bob's succeed.

Mr. Bob’s Under the Bridge is 100% funded by donations for our operations. Your generosity and support are crucial to our ability to serve our friends. Donations come in many forms, from dropping off your gently used items at our Monday or Thursday night sorting, to donating your time volunteering at a Saturday morning outreach. Any donation made to Mr. Bob's Under the Bridge goes directly to our friends. We take monetary donations, clothing items, hygiene items, food, and more. We appreciate all donations, no matter the size.
