Students all across Waunakee supported their neighbors by donating their gently used school supplies at the end of the school year – now you can help get the supplies ready for distribution! Help us sort and organize these donations so we can hit the ground running when school starts this Fall — click our Volunteer button on the right of each webpage to sign up.

Not able to help those days? We’re also looking for donations of paper bags (plain on at least one side, with handles) – please drop them off at WNC during donation hours.

As part of State Bank of Cross Plains’ 110-year anniversary celebration, they gave every one of their employees $110 each to donate to a charity, cause, or organization of their choice.

We want to thank Michelle, Janel, George, and Aaron for choosing WNC as the recipient of their donation!

When asked why he chose WNC, Aaron said, “I know WNC does a great job supporting Waunakee families when they need help the most.” We are proud to partner with State Bank of Cross Plains to Build a Stronger Community… One Story at a Time!

As the school year comes to a close, WNC’s school supply drive is starting!

There are purple bins at each of the Waunakee Schools (except Prairie) for students to donate their used supplies. This presents a great opportunity for students looking to help out in the community.

Want to get involved even more? WNC needs volunteers to empty bins now throughout the end of the year! This is a perfect way to get a few end-of-year volunteer hours by collecting the donations and delivering them to WNC, either on your own or with the help of a parent. You can sign up to volunteer here!

WNC Open House to Honor Genna’s Legacy

Wednesday, May 16, 2018


Once upon a time, a woman saw a need.
She organized an effort which connected a community who embraced
a simple mission – to Serve Our Neighbors!
After 15 years of selflessly dedicating her efforts
to making a difference in thousands of peoples’ lives right here
in our community,
‘the mountains are calling and I (Genna) must go’.
While no formal education in the nonprofit world
(um, German and Political Science Major),
this energetic woman didn’t take no for an answer – for anything – EVER!
As such, dozens of awesome needs based programs and services were created and executed – all of which are FREE to people in need.
Genna maintains ‘We are a Stuffed Out America!’
and we should share with each other – simple concept, right?!
And as far as plugging in as a volunteer, well, it’s pretty hard
(just about impossible)
to say no to someone so passionate and committed.
– isn’t that hook, line and sinker, but in a really good way!
To the tune of engaging hundreds of volunteers and thousands of hours each year!
She actively sought out and fostered partnerships with businesses, schools, individuals and organizations – again, all with the intention of fulfilling their goals as well as those of WNC!
Bonita, as she is affectionately called, is honored to be part of a big family of those who have met with some trying times. And after all, as she always says, ‘We all have needs – just various levels of needs.’
Genna spearheaded a $1,000,000 Capital Campaign which resulted in a permanent, debt free, sustainable organization for years to come – WOW, what a legacy!
