Glue Crew Makes Annual Donation to Share Your Holidays
The Glue Crew is coming through once again for Share Your Holidays.
During it's monthly meeting Thursday evening, Wausau's plastic modeling club made a $350 donation.
It's helped out the effort for several years.
Club members say the money was raised during their annual modeling contest in October. It also made a donation to The Woman's Community abuse shelter in Wausau.
Share Your Holidays is NewsChannel 7's annual food drive and fundraiser for the Salvation Army and Neighbor's Place food pantries. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the event.
Normally, SYH kicks off during the Wausau Holiday Parade with members of the NewsChannel 7 staff walking along in the parade taking donations of food and money. Since the parade is canceled this year because of the cold, NC7 staffers will take donations at the "warming party" held in the Great Hall Friday evening. It starts at 6pm.
After that, you can make food and money donations at the NewsChannel 7 studios on Grand Avenue and money donations at all River Valley Bank branches.
This year, thanks to more matching donations than ever before, every dollar donated will be doubled up to $35,000.
Share Your Holidays runs from December 6 through December 20.
Last year, more than $44,000 was donated bringing the total since Share Your Holidays started in 2003 to $251,292. Tons of food has also been donated.
Share Your Holidays is brought to you by The River Valley Bank, Wagner Shell, JX Truck Center and NewsChannel 7.
Matching grants are provided by The River Valley Bank, The Dudley Foundation and the Miller-Halvorsen Family.
