The Willkomm Companies 8th Annual Charity Fundraiser benefiting two local homeless shelters concluded Friday at the company’s Christmas party. Representatives from HALO of Racine and Shalom Center of Kenosha were each presented with a $12,637 check for their shelters.
The Christmas party is the final piece of the fundraiser for these two local homeless shelters, where employees take part in a raffle to help raise more money for the shelters, contributing $600 towards the total. For the month prior, employees at twelve locations asked customers to help raise money for these shelters. The twelve locations include:
· Willkomm’s on Spring, Rocket Wash & The Dish – Racine (Spring St. & Hwy 31, Racine)
· Willkomm’s Highlands PETRO, Iron Skillet Restaurant and TA Truck Service (HWY 20 & I-94, Racine)
· Willkomm’s Oasis Mobil & The Dish – Oak Creek(Hwy 100 & 27th St., Oak Creek)
· JWI Mobil Distribution Plant (I-94 & HWY E, Somers)
Adding to these amounts, Exxon Mobil contributed $1,000! So in grand total, this year, the Willkomm Companies proudly raised $25,274 for these shelters.
