When a family is out of food, they go to a food pantry. But where do they turn when they run out of diapers or formula – two high-cost, high-need items?
Bundles of Joy distributes diapers and infant formula via area organizations who serve struggling families in Marathon County.
The volunteer-run Gift-Wrapping Station at the Wausau Center Mall is one fundraising part of this project. Hundreds of volunteers graciously donate their time wrapping gifts from Black Friday through Christmas Eve and shoppers can donate to fund the Bundles of Joy project for the entire year. This annual fundraiser offers a fun and festive opportunity to volunteer for a local cause, knowing your efforts provide essential items for babies and toddlers right here in our local community.
Sign-up for 2018 will be coming out in early to mid-November.
On October 20, 2018 there will be a Wausau Charity 0.1K Run on the 400 block to benefit Bundles of Joy. Food trucks, hours of entertainment, themed runs and the main event, the “Chariots of Fire – Slow Motion Run”.
