September 2014 – We donated a Wisconsin Breakfast basket featuring all Wisconsin produced foods for a Silent Auction item for a backyard event to benefit Helping the Homeless in Janesville, WI.  This event took place on Labor Day weekend and was sponsored by the Tom Hathaway Family (an old high school classmate and friend of Judy’s).  The event was a success, members of the community donated clothing, food, and helped to raise several thousand dollars to be given to homeless shelters in Rock County.
