With weather this beautiful in February, we had to get outside and enjoy it! Clients soaked up the sunshine last week with a few barnyard visitors: goats! 🌞

Brought in by a client's mom, the baby goats were fun for both clients and staff to play with. Bottlefeeding and cuddling ...these little cuties was definitely the highlight of the day!

Did you know interacting with animals has been shown to decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure? Studies have found that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support, and boost your mood. [National Institute of Health]

Chip, chip, hooray - lunchtime just got a little tastier! Frito-Lay donated snack-size chips to fill the KANDU lunch bags presented to clients on their first day of work at our new Milton location. Frito-Lay was so generous that we had quite a few bags left over, so we distributed the extras to ...clients at lunchtime last week. Thank you, Frito-Lay! 🎉

Five seniors from the Global Business Academy at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville came to KANDU for a tour this week. The students got to interact with clients in programs and production, and then had the opportunity to join KANDU’s Senior Management Meeting for a behind-the-scenes look ...at the inner workings of a non-profit organization.

These seniors were here to learn about the importance of giving back to their community, the impactful role that non-profit organizations play in Rock County, and the personal and professional opportunities that come with being a nonprofit board member. Here’s to the next generation of community leaders!

Last week KANDU board member Kim Hesgard brought in a Valentine's treat basket for staff & we drew a winner: Dakota! Dakota just started at KANDU's Livin' & Learnin' program last week, and we were thrilled to give her a warm welcome!
