Wimmer Communities proudly owns and operates 30+ communities in the Greater Milwaukee Area. For the past four years, they’ve partnered with the Milwaukee Rescue Mission to support our efforts in providing new toys and clothing, shoes, school supplies, household and personal care items to our neighbors in need.

This year, you can join Wimmer Communities to help make it a merry Christmas for hundreds of men, women and children finding shelter and care at MRM!

Make a monetary contribution towards Christmas gifts here (please indicate “Christmas gifts” in the comments section) — or, you can purchase items from MRM’s Christmas Wish List below and drop your new, unwrapped gift in the collection basket at any Wimmer Leasing Office.

MRM's Christmas Wish List ($10 minimum value, please)

**While the items below are most needed, any assortment of new toys, games and gift cards are acceptable.**

  • New toys for children
    • Teen gift ideas include: Razor scooters, nerf guns, sports apparel/merchandise, earbuds/headphones, speakers, watches, remote control cars, perfumes and colognes, Bath & Body Works items, make up, lip gloss, nail polish + nail polish kits, art supplies, earrings, necklaces
  • Watches & jewelry
  • Perfumes/cologne
  • Lotions
  • Soaps & loofahs
  • Women’s robes & slippers
  • Men’s scarves
  • Wallets
  • Gift cards
  • Authentic sports team attire (Packers, Brewers, Bucks, etc.) — hats, sweatshirts, warm gear
Thanks to many generous friends, MRM has plenty of baby & newborn toys — what a blessing!
As a result, they do not need baby toys at this time.

Once your toys and gifts are gathered, you may drop off donations to any Wimmer Community leasing office—they’ll take care of the rest! For community info and directions, please visit

Please deliver your toys by December 9th.  Toys accepted after this point may not necessarily be distributed this Christmas, but will still be used throughout the year for tutoring programs, reading incentives, Joy House birthdays, City Camp prizes, and other MRM / Equip programming.
