WAVE HOLIDAY GIVING
Thank you to all who gave for our 2019 Winter Classic Donation Tree! We were able to donate over 300 items to our food pantries in Beloit + Waunakee. We truly appreciate your support and generosity!
With Black Friday + Cyber Monday in our sights, please consider a few more WAVE charitable + fundraising initiatives as you start your shopping.
'Tis the Season of giving here at WAVE!
WNC HOLIDAY ADOPT-A-FAMILY
WAVE is happy to participate in the Waunakee Neighborhood Connection’s Adopt-a-Family program for the third year in a row. We have been matched with a family of five and have a list of their needs and wants for this holiday season. Please consider donating an item or two to help a neighbor in need:

We will collect all UNWRAPPED gifts in the pool lobby on Wednesday, December 11 from 6:00PM - 8:00PM.
During that time we will wrap and tag all the gifts. Swimmers are encouraged to sign-up for short shifts before or after practice to help. Please scroll down the spreadsheet to sign up your swimmers.Before drop-off, please label each package with a post-it note with the family member recipient. (e.g., 10-year-old girl, mom, 8-year-old boy, etc.) We will tag according to this information once we wrap gifts.
You will see a few "wants" that are general (e.g., family experiences). Multiple families can sign-up for this gift.
A few new things this year:
WNC would like gifts to stay within a $100 per family member budget. This to keep things equitable between all their families. We ask that you try to gauge your purchase(s) against other items on the list to do this as best you can.
Please save item receipt(s) and turn in with your gift donation(s). The family will not see these; WNC would like them to assess the impact of their program.
Gift receipts are recommended.
If you'd like to donate extra items, WNC suggests:
Toiletries – Toilet paper, shampoo, etc.
Please support WAVE with your shopping - at the holidays and year-round! During each transaction, a portion of the purchase price will be donated back to our amazing nonprofit youth swim team. We also invite you to share this with friends + family. Please see below for more information and how to get started!
