Hello, Club stakeholders!
The past month or so has truly been a unique time in the history of our world, and the impact on the Club has been significant as well. We remain closed for afterschool programming, and we certainly miss our more than 1,000 members who were participating in this year’s afterschool program. While we can’t run those programs, rest assured that Club staff are still working hard to have an impact for families.
Our online and virtual program offerings and daily meal program deliveries in partnership with the Fond du Lac School District continue to be a significant success. We are distributing more than 500 meals per day, and I think families come back day after day for the smiles and positive interaction as much as they do for the food! A special thank you to Baker Cheese, Eric and Kendra Stone and Dairy Queen for their special donations and additions to this daily offering.
As we move forward into continued uncertainty, we encourage you to find ways to reach out and help other people whenever possible. While our Club is certainly in need of continued support, we recognize that our role right now is to support the needs of the greater Fond du Lac community. We will continue to rise to the occasion and be a part of solution to help our community thrive. Join us in our effort to make Fond du Lac a better place beyond the COVID-19 pandemic by making a difference, whatever that looks like for you. We will be together again, and we can’t wait to see your smiles!
Be safe, stay healthy and be positive!
Jim Spannbauer, Board President and Dan Hebel, CEO
