Where: Kenosha, WI
When: July 28-August 2, 2019
Who: 5th & 6th Graders
If you’re looking to “live on the edge” this summer, Kenosha could be the right choice! This Wisconsin city lies just on the edge of Illinois and Lake Michigan, right between the hustle and bustle of two larger cities: Milwaukee and Chicago. If the fact that Kenosha is home to the southernmost port on Lake Michigan isn’t enough to bait you, perhaps the Jelly Belly factory down the road will be more to your taste! Years ago, Kenosha was an active center of manufacturing, but like many other cities in this part of the country, the community has been hurt by factory closures and industry changes. At the beginning of 2013, the last wall came down at American Motors—a manufacturing plant that once brought hope and income to many families in the city.
The city of Kenosha has targeted two areas as its top priority to address in the next five years: first, programs to help the youth of the community; and second, improvements to its urban areas. Week of Hope projects will directly and indirectly support these top two initiatives. You and our team will help the city accomplish these worthwhile goals with your involvement!
