Morgridge Center Update by Katie Coon

The  Morgridge Center is UW-Madison’s center for public service – connecting students, faculty and academic staff with nonprofits and the community through volunteerism, service-learning and community-based research.  Check myBiz each week for new ways to get involved.

Help the United Way “Make a Wish Come True”
You can make a difference in the life of a child, family, or older adult in Dane County this holiday season by donating food, toys, clothes, or even your time. The Holiday Wish List, distributed every year by the United Way of Dane County, offers a compilation of local nonprofits and how you can help them make the holidays warm and bright for those in need this year. With over 10 pages of local nonprofits to choose from, you can be sure to find an opportunity that works with your time and schedule. Visit http://www.unitedwaydanecounty.org/ for more information, or check out the Holiday Wish List here.
