The Boxes of Love Story
Boxes of Love was started by the Cochran family in 2006. Started as Bay Attitude by Tatum, with support from sister Trina & mom and dad, Carol and Tim, they organized fundraisers (carwash, haunted house, photo shoot, jewelry sale, casino night, and Boxes of Love) to support a variety of causes.
The girls and their friends enjoyed doing Boxes of Love so much that they continued to grow it for 4 years, eventually reaching $4000 in sales & $2500 in profits.
When the Cochran family moved away, the Katz family took over Boxes of Love. It continues to grow, providing needed funding for many organizations, and a way for Whitefish Bay kids to help others during the holiday season.
Thank you, Tatum, for creating this amazing fundraiser!
