Making Spirits Bright

Sheboygan County Rotary Clubs provide Making Spirits Bright – an annual drive-through holiday lights show in Evergreen Park benefiting Sheboygan County Food Bank by collecting healthy, non-perishable food items. Admission to the park is free of charge, but donating pantry items is highly encouraged. Postponed in 2020 for health safety: across the street in The Quarryview Center, visitors enjoy visits with Santa, wreath raffles, entertainment and concessions.

Making Spirits Bright is Sheboygan County Food Bank’s largest food drive. Over half million pounds of food items have been collected since the event started in 2012!

A Message from our Team During the COVID-19 Crisis

Thank You for the Support!

There’s no doubt that the current health crisis has generated a unique challenge for Sheboygan County Food Bank. Many more of our neighbors have become dependent on emergency food distribution services. Moreover, we’re also filling the gaps from the loss of partner food drive events, community food drives, and our grocery stores gleaning program by purchasing a substantial amount of food. We’re very grateful that Making Spirits Bright is able to safely continue in 2020. Your support through volunteering and donating food are much appreciated!
