Over 12 days in December, KML’s Student Council and National Honor Society work to collect money through student involvement to support families in need. Parents, federation members, alumni, friends, and the community are encouraged to donate as well.

In 2022 we raised over $45,000 to help the Bublitz, Schram, and Strong families. Learn more about our 2022 families.

Thank you to Coffeeville Company for partnering with us again this year to support this program through the coffee fundraiser, and THANK YOU TO ALL WHO GAVE SO GENEROUSLY to help this year’s 12 Days families. What a wonderful way to share the love of our Savior through our actions!

12 Days Families for 2022

Bublitz Family

Andrew (Roo) Bublitz (KML class of 1998) passed away in January 2022 after a long health-related battle. He leaves behind a wife and two children. Many medical bills are still a part of their lives.

Schram Family

While going to the store July 8, 2022, Traci Schram and her husband, Travis, were in a motorcycle accident on I-45.

Travis and Traci were rushed to Froedtert and admitted to the ICU. Although the first responders and medical staff did everything in their power to save him, the family was greatly saddened to learn that Travis never regained consciousness and went to be with our Lord in heaven on July 9, 2022.

Even though Travis shielded Traci from the worst, Traci sustained numerous severe injuries including nine broken and shattered ribs, a broken scapula, a broken clavicle, and a punctured lung. Traci had undergone several procedures and a surgery on July 11, and after being in the ICU on a ventilator for several days and a long hospital stay, Traci was able to go back home and be with their two children, Tegan and Taryn.

Healing has been long and slow, both physically, mentally, and emotionally for not only Traci, but for the kids and their extended family. It is uncertain when Traci will be able to go back to work because of her injuries, but with the outpouring of love and support from their amazing family, friends, and community, they have been able to push through these hard times and keep going.

Thank you for your love, words of encouragement, prayers, and support for the Schrams as they navigate life without Travis.

Strong Family

We are the Strong family – Abbie, Hannah, and Elijah. We are being blessed by your school family due to the sudden passing of our husband and dad, Aaron.  He was on his way to Grace Lutheran where he served as one of their pastors when he was struck and killed by a driver speeding through a red light. While we miss him deeply, we trust that God is using this to further the kingdom, that he has a plan for us, and that we will see Aaron again in the mansions of heaven.  We are humbled and very appreciative of your prayers and support for our family during this season. He will hold us fast!
