On this Giving Tuesday, Waukesha County Park System is celebrating a milestone in community support: the Park System Volunteer Program reached over 10,000 volunteer hours logged. In addition, over $46,000 in donations were received to support park projects. It is a reminder of the power of people and organizations to transform their communities.
“Small acts like volunteering for an hour, or donating a few dollars, really add up for our park system,” said Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. “This holiday season, I want to thank our generous community for their commitment to our parks. We hope to carry this momentum into next year.”

“The Park System simply could not be as strong of an organization without the community support, so this Giving Tuesday we are thankful to all that help us continue our mission,” said Department of Parks and Land Use Director Dale Shaver.
