2019 Feed the Kids

Feed the Kids is a summer meal program designed to meet the needs of children in Milwaukee neighborhoods with the greatest needs.  The Salvation Army vans bring lunch meals to neighborhoods, parks and street corners to serve an average of 2,000 lunches each day, Monday - Friday, for approximately 10 weeks each summer.

The meal assembly for the Feed the Kids program is completely volunteer supported. Twenty volunteers are needed Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (or until meal assembly is completed). 

Youth under age 18 must have approval from parent or guardian in order to volunteer. This form is available to print here:  Parental Consent Form   Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Groups of teens or children require one adult per every four children. 

Duties include:  Meal preparation, assembly, light clean-up and room set-up for the next day.

2019 Kapco Kids2Kids

Kids2Kids & Kapco

Kapco’s Kids2Kids Christmas originated after retired WTMJ radio host, Jonathan Green, and Kapco President, Jim Kacmarcik, envisioned a campaign that would help both low-income children as well as make an impact on the children who contributed.

When the endeavor was launched in 2006, Kapco’s original goal was to collect 1,000 toys. Yet, through the active participation and generosity of schools, business, organizations and thousands of generous individuals, this number was far surpassed. Now, 13 years later, the toy count tops well over 20,000 toys annually and just as importantly, several thousand children actively participate in this cause by volunteering and contributing toys.


  • 2019 marks the 14th year of Kapco’s Kids2Kids Toy Drive

  • Over 205,630 toys collected and donated

  • Our ELVES bake and serve more than 25 dozen Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies each year at our Kids2Kids Christmas Celebration

  • Over 350 ELVES volunteer their time each year

Be a part of this amazing event as a volunteer this year.
