Community Updates

For 8 weeks, employees and visitors to the various sites brought in broken and unused holiday lights. These lights will be recycled by Habitat for Humanity of Wausau, with proceeds benefitting Habitat for Humanity’s efforts right here in Central Wisconsin. Over the past 2 years, NCHC has donated close to 480 pounds of lights.

A team of employees at North Central Health Care surveyed over 800 employees, asking them their areas of interest in community volunteering. Habitat for Humanity came up as one of the top four areas on the survey results, so the team stepped into action, contacting Habitat for Humanity of Wausau to see how they could help.

“Our employees at North Central Health Care expressed an interest in helping Habitat for Humanity. Since linking up, we have collected lights, helped on a home build in the community, and have made connections with our Prevocational Services team and actively have clients volunteering and learning valuable customer service and job skills at the Recycled Building Materials Warehouse in Wausau. Habitat for Humanity has been great to work with and have made it easy for our team to participate in various ways. We are glad we can help local families achieve their home-owning goals.” – Jessica Meadows, North Central Health Care Communication & Marketing Coordinator
