Nearly 300 packages were assembled by dozens of parents and their children inside a Waunakee church as a Thanksgiving offering for the area's hungry and homeless.
The effort was a small, family pay-it-forward project where it engages the help of community members. A total of 230 care packages were collected, and the volunteers are still accepting donations on their Facebook page.
Village Capital announced the winners of the $50,000 prize awarded to social entrepreneurs who don’t “self-define as social entrepreneurs”. The winners didn’t start out thinking of themselves as social enterprises.
