The Service Club of Milwaukee, organized in 1910 by Mrs. Walter Dake, was founded on the concept of providing young women with a variety of volunteer and fundraising experiences during their high school years. Each year, Service Club members serve over 5,000 hours in the greater Milwaukee community. In the last twenty years, the Service Club has awarded over $1,250,000 to local non-profit organizations. The objective of the Service Club is to have each girl develop and grow as an individual through the experience of working as a community volunteer. It must also be the goal of each member to fulfill every volunteer hour with the spirit and enthusiasm of achieving personal growth.
The Mission of our Organization
The mission statement of the Service Club of Milwaukee is two-fold:
To help high school girls develop a lifelong enthusiasm and commitment to community service and fundraising by introducing them to meaningful volunteer opportunities and experiences in the greater Milwaukee Community, and to provide funding to local, non-profit organizations.
