    Wisconsin Rapids, WI- On October 10th, the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce started a food drop off box for “FOCUS” Food Pantry, formerly known as “SWEPS” for the Holiday Season.

    • Jelly
    • Crackers
    • Cereals
    • Dry Pastas
    The pantry donation ended on November 16th and the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce dropped off the items on November 17th with a total weight of 371 pounds.
    “I want to thank the community for helping get items donated to the FOCUS food pantry. We couldn’t have done this without you, and you are helping hundreds of families in the area who are in dire need of these certain items,” says Katie Wright, Event Director for the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce. “I hope to exceed donations next year. Keep an eye out on our Facebook or Website for more upcoming opportunities to donate. This has been an amazing process and heartwarming to be doing something like this for our area.”
