Making Spirits Bright Gifts $30,000 to Help Purchase Healthy Food

Making Spirits Bright is already spreading joy and living up to its name ahead of our partnership anniversary of ten years. The organization just donated $30,000 to help purchase healthy food for our neighbors in need.
From the day after Thanksgiving through December each year, Sheboygan County Rotary Clubs provide Making Spirits Bright – a drive-through holiday lights show in Evergreen Park benefiting Sheboygan County Food Bank by collecting non-perishable food items. Over 730,000 pounds of food and personal care items have been collected since the event started in 2012!
In addition to the annual event partnership, Sheboygan County Food Bank has received monetary donations from Making Spirits Bright over the years to obtain critical equipment and supplies, such as multiple trucks and healthy foods, and greatly appreciates the continued support. With the recent $30,000 gift, Making Spirits Bright has donated a grand total of $115,000 to Sheboygan County Food Bank.

“Making Spirits Bright has been a key partner for Sheboygan County Food Bank for nearly a decade. We rely on their event and food drive to stock our shelves and help us make sure no one in Sheboygan County goes hungry year-round. We truly appreciate their generous support.” – Patrick Boyle, Executive Director, Sheboygan County Food Bank.

Making Spirits Bright will be open every night, November 26 – December 31, from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM (closed on Dec. 24) at Evergreen Park in Sheboygan. Learn more about our signature partnership.
