“Donating to such a worthwhile organization is very rewarding,” said Paul Krikau, dean of students. “Pillar & Vine is an outstanding organization and we’re happy to assist how we can.”

Pillar & Vine is a 501(c)3 private, non-profit, child-placing agency licensed through the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. The agency licenses, trains, and supports foster families in their work with children placed in foster care. The agency also offers a variety of services including parent coaching, visitation supervision, respite services, and transportation to enable parents to meet the needs of their children. Pillar & Vine’s model includes working closely with biological parents, foster parents, social workers, schools, and community providers to facilitate successful family reunification or an alternative permanent plan, such as adoption in the timeliest way possible.

The donated mattresses will be shared with foster families within the Pillar & Vine organization.
