Chippewa County Employees Fill the Cart
For the last week and a half, Chippewa County employees have been filling grocery carts with nonperishable food items to donate to the Chippewa Falls Salvation Army. The "Fill the Cart" Challenge presented by the Chippewa County Wellness Program posed a friendly competition between the departments in the courthouse, along with the Sheriff, Jail and Highway Department to collect the most donations. On Thursday, Dec. 18, these items were donated to the Salvation Army and weighed in at 653 pounds! "This competition lifted employee spirits and gave us the opportunity to work as a team and give back to those who are struggling this holiday season,” said Stephanie Abbe, Registered Dietitian and Wellness Coordinator. The Challenge winner was departments on the first floor, followed closely by departments on the second floor. The Wellness Program would like to thank Gordy's County Market for allowing us to borrow carts for this challenge.
