“What you give to humanity you get back. Bread cast upon waters is more wholesome and nourishing than pie in the sky.” – Melvin Jones
The Life on Life Initiative is making quite a difference in the world because of the selfless people who continue to organize events that focus on helping people in need. Winter is in full swing and this cold reality inspired Life Members from Wisconsin to step up and help the community by hosting an event that would help women stay safe and warm during the winter months.
On a beautiful 70 degree November day in Wisconsin, a group of Stealth CIA Life Members gathered together on a Saturday and put their hearts and talents to use by holding a winter car care clinic to help single moms, widows, and women who have husbands deployed overseas. This totally FREE Life on Life project was held in the parking lot of Mark’s Auto Repair in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. Mark Maas, owner and Certified Master Mechanic, directed all of the services for the event.
“We fed a boat load of people chili and hot dogs, we cleaned the inside of people’s cars that were being worked on, and we heard so many thank you’s and saw many smiles. We were also able to help a single mom with 2 children that told us she could be homeless on Wednesday. We brainstormed ideas and gave her resources for help. One of our teammates told her about a possible job opening at his work place and she was going to go online and apply. It was such a rewarding day!” – Lori Maas (Life Member)
“Serving with these amazing leaders was a lot to soak in! They are incredible people with huge hearts and I am so honored to have linked arms with each and every one of them. I learn so much every time we’re together. Thank you for all the love and laughs!! It is such an honor to be making a difference in so many people’s lives with you!” – Heather Peterson (Life Member)
