Duffels for Kids, a non-profit that provides duffel bags filled with personal items to children in need, is having a fundraiser on Monday, Jan. 5 to pay for a delivery vehicle.

The vehicle will help the program expand into Kenosha and Milwaukee counties. The duffel bags have been handed out to children through many groups in southeast Wisconsin, including law enforcement agencies, shelters, foster care families, and camps for abused children.

The fundraiser will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 5 at Buffalo Wild Wings, 5880 Durand Ave. To participate, you’ll need to print the ticket or download it to your phone and present to the staff so that 10 percent of the proceeds will go to the organization. Dine in, carry out.
