MobilizeMKE is a movement of people helping our neighbors in tangible ways. Our goal is to live out the love and compassion of Jesus by bringing together local churches to make an impact in our communities.


These needs will continue to change and new challenges will arise, and we want to be there to serve when they do. Keep reading for more information.

Mobilize MKE Food Drive


Total Neighbors Fed | 135,000!

COVID-19 has caused a 35-50% spike in the number of people needing the services of food banks in Metro Milwaukee. This pandemic has also forced the cancellation of many food drives, multiplying the food crisis our neighbors are facing right now.

Your donations have served the following food pantries: New Berlin Food Pantry, Muskego Food Pantry, City of Greenfield, Jewish Community Pantry, Mt Lebanon. Zion Rock, City on a Hill, South Milwaukee Human Concerns, and the Milwaukee Rescue Mission.

THANK YOU!
We hope this is just the start of MANY great mobilizations to come!
