Dear BLW community, The FDA issued a recall for Similac, Alimentum, or EleCare powdered infant formulas due to these powdered infant formulas having the potential to be contaminated with cronobacter and/or Salmonella. Full details, information, and an image of the product code is available here.
Since 2004, BLW Center has had one driving purpose: to respond to the needs identified by our community members. While the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, one thing is certain. We will continue to listen to our community and do everything we can to provide support during this challenging time.
To ensure the safety of our community members, BLW Center is taking safety precautions seriously while we open up to the public. Our center is now open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. for community access to resources like computers, printers, phones, etc.. Everyone who enters the building will have their temperature checked to ensure everyone's safety. While some of BLW Center's usual programming is paused, we will be serving our community in the following ways:
1. Resource referral (bilingual). Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 608-441-6991 to set-up an appointment.
2. Food and household staples. Check our Calendar for our next drive-through food pantry date. BLW, in partnership with Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, holds a mobile food pantry where BLW distributes free food to those in need. Our food pantry is open to all! Please contact us at 608-441-6991 for an appointment to set-up your pick-up time, otherwise it is first come, first served. If you leave us a message, someone will return your call.
BLW Center staff are thinking of you during this difficult period and hope you and your loved ones stay healthy.
BLW Center Transforms Lives.
Sometimes that means helping a parent attain a family-supporting job, or tutoring a child to earn straight A’s in school. Other times that means connecting a community member with a volunteer opportunity that brightens the lives of others. Regardless of what brings you to BLW, everyone is welcome.
Since 2004, BLW Center’s mission has been to support its community in addressing the needs identified by its residents. Our programs include a food pantry, youth programming, Family Resources Center, senior program, wellness services, community events, and much more.
BLW Center, the Vera Court Neighborhood Center, and the Latino Academy of Workforce Development are organizations within the Vera Court Neighborhood Center, Inc. 501(c)(3) non-profit agency.
