Great Northern’s team packed along with 500 other volunteers, filling 722 boxes which serves 155,952 meals! This feeds 427 kids for a year! In a single weekend, a total of 5,000 volunteers packed 1.2 million meals!
Our very own chairman of the board and decorated Vietnam veteran, Bill Raaths, was recently featured in a video for a Wisconsin Veterans Village Association campaign, promoting the creation of a first-of-its-kind Veterans Village in Northeast Wisconsin.
With the Fox Cities veteran population being 8.8%, which is higher than the national average, there is a great need for affordable housing and support for veterans in all stages of life in our area. When they return to civilian life, many veterans continue to face challenges.
