600 W 3rd Street Apartment Fire

April 2018

SVdP has decided to help apartment 600 with the same package of assistance as we did last month for Knaup Drive. Residents please make your way to our Thrift store for $100 Kohls card, clothing, and personal items. Thank you to Kohls for giving out 25% OFF store-wide to our neighbors in need. Fund donations can be made at any American Bank location in Beaver Dam to the SVdP Emergency Response Fund and online here.

We would like to thank Pave for stepping forward to help with baby formula for a 600 3rd street family. There are wonderful organizations in our community. All need our support. Any corporate or non-profit looking to get involved please hesitate no more. Call SVdp between 9am to 4pm and ask for our Store Manager, Ben. Together we can take care of these residents equally as we have the last.

People want to know how to help. Please pray for our neighbors in need and our brave first responders from all over Dodge County. Consider a monetary donation to the fund at American Bank. Out of pocket expenses will be high. Furniture will be needed after April 15 through May 5th as residents gain access to new apartments. If businesses or communities would like to donate resources for distribution, the building had 17 units. We can distribute coupons and gift cards equally to the residents. SVdP welcomes partnerships with all who wish to participate in lending a helping hand to our neighbors in need.
