We know that Mr. Rogers had it right when he said to "look for the helpers." We've already been hearing from people asking how they can help their vulnerable or lonely neighbors during this time, so we have opened an online registration for the community to track who is interested and available. Once you register, we'll contact you as we hear of needs that arise in Waunakee.
We'll be sharing the volunteer list with the Village and other local agencies as they have needs for temporary volunteers. The registration list will not be used for any purposes other than volunteer mobilization.
Many households might also experience financial difficulties over the coming weeks due to being displaced from work. Waunakee Neighborhood Connection has a Neighbor-to-Neighbor emergency fund that can provide temporary financial assistance to households facing a short-term crisis. Donations to the fund can be made online at
or be mailed to Waunakee Neighborhood Connection, 208 S Century Avenue, Waunakee, WI 53597. Please indicate that the gift is for the Neighbor-to-Neighbor fund.
