The Value of Giving

The holidays are a great reminder to give back to your community. The possibility of giving can continue all year long through donating to local nonprofit agencies. There was a request to list some of the local nonprofits in our area as a sort of “giving guide”. This list is in no way comprehensive, so if you feel an organization has been overlooked or should be added, please leave a comment below and I will make sure they get included.

There are many ways to donate but the two most common are time and money. If you are looking to donate time I suggest checking out the United Way of Waukesha County. They have a volunteer database where you can lookup different volunteer opportunities available in the area. Otherwise the contact information for each of the nonprofit organizations available by checking out this list, please contact them for more information.

Of course, We would love to have you come down and volunteer at the library. Some of the bigger events we could use help for are our temporary relocation or the Summer Reading Program. Stop in for a teen or adult volunteer application today!
