Shorewest Provides Gifts, Hats & Mittens, Food and Fun
to More Than 400 Southeastern Wisconsin Youth
On Saturday, December 5, sales associates and employees from the Shorewest, Realtors family of companies gathered at Sussex Hamilton High School to share the spirit of the season with more than 400 southeastern-Wisconsin youth — painting faces, eating food and having fun. Plus, Santa Claus and his elves made a surprise visit to give gifts,
hats, mittens and cookies to the children!
This is Shorewest’s 25th year of giving back to the community through Christmas is for Kids. Christmas is for Kids was founded by Del Rohr, a Shorewest sales associate who passed away in 2001. His daughter Christine Caponigro and his wife, Delores, helped continue the tradition this year, helping children find their perfect hat, mittens and scarves. Caponigro also serves on the planning committee for Christmas is for Kids.
“It is very rewarding to honor my father’s tradition and help those less fortunate, especially young children,” says Caponigro. “The entire company embraces Christmas is for Kids each year by donating money, supplies, cookies and their time and talent.”
Annually, people in the Shorewest family of companies give thousands of dollars and hours to Christmas is for Kids. That money and time provides books throughout the year, back-to-school supplies in the fall and the holiday party. Christmas is for Kids is for children of every background and every southeastern Wisconsin neighborhood whose families could use a little help during the holidays. Shorewest began this wonderful event in 1984.
