A great local program. Waunakee Utilities is once again supporting Waunakee Ecumencial Board's Keep Your Neighbors Warm campaign by collecting cash donations and Walmart gift cards. The cash donations will be used to purchase gift cards to help keep our less fortunate neighbors warm during the upcoming winter season. In exchange for every $25 donation made, Waunakee Utilities will provide you with one 25-foot strand of LED holiday lights, which use one-tenth the energy of traditional mini holiday lights.
