For 30 years, Community Shares has been a strong supporter of nonprofits focusing on Social Justice, Animal Welfare and the Environment. Over the coming months, we will be sharing 30 stories from our 30 years of community change.
What would you do if you were diagnosed with cancer? Would you move forward with surgeries and chemo therapy? Robert Lintereur, Wellspring Board Member, was diagnosed with prostate cancer 6 years ago and chose a simple macrobiotic diet instead of the usual recommended chemo therapy.
Click here to see how quickly organic foods helped Lintereur become cancer free and how the organization is reaching out to the community, encouraging people to live healthier, more sustainable lives.
Inspiring Lintereur in some ways was Wellspring, a pioneer in providing certified organic produce to families in Greater Milwaukee. In addition, the organization is an educational center that raises awareness of healthy food systems and teaches others to grow a broad spectrum of healthy fruits and vegetables.
Community Shares of Greater Milwaukee is passionately committed to raising money for our more than 50 nonprofit members through employee giving in area workplaces. By donating to Community Shares, you help us help them make Milwaukee a better place to live.
“Hosting a Community Shares campaign is consistent with our corporate values.”
