These included:

  • Sheboygan County Human Rights Association for a Vision Screener Project
  • Big Brothers &amp Big Sisters for their Lunch Buddies Program
  • Sheboygan County YMCA for their Grant School Lunch Program
  • Fresh Meals On Wheels Of Sheboygan County for Truck Maintenance which is Critical to their Meal Delivery
