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!

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 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!
