Community organizations come together to share their story in La Crosse

Several organizations in the area are giving people a chance to learn about how they impact the community.

About 20 organizations joined together for the ‘Love Your Community’ event at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.

Representatives from those organizations gave information about their missions, programs and volunteer opportunities.

Mayo Clinic staff hope to encourage more connections within the community.

“We’re hoping that as they learn about their missions and about their volunteer opportunities that that will inspire employees if they’re not already engaged in the community to consider volunteering with one of these groups,” said Teri Wildt, Director of Community Engagement for Mayo Clinic Health System.

This is the first year of the event.
