WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- The Wisconsin Woodchucks have raised $10,000 for charity since last March from the sale of their logo facemasks and promotional work. The donations are benefiting local food banks in a year they're needed most.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Marathon County’s largest food bank, The Neighbors' Place, has provided food for over 500 new families since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March. As that number continues to grow, fundraisers like the Empty Bowls 2020 event are more important than ever.
Despite the pandemic in full swing in Wisconsin, Marathon County continues to give back to others. Recently the community donated more than 7,000 pounds of food through United Way’s annual ‘Together We Can’ food drive.
WAUSAU – People don't often think about food insecurity until it hits home. For many individuals and families in Marathon County the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact on the state and country has forced them to reach out for assistance.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The Marathon County Hunger Coalition, in partnership with The Neighbors' Place, DC Everest-Wausau Blessings in a Backpack and USDA will be handing out free boxes of food to anyone - first come, first served, with no income requirements on Friday.
