Best Volunteer Opportunity

Whether you’re a student looking to get some service-learning hours or a community member of any age hoping to give back, the Chippewa Valley is overflowing with organizations that would love your help. Bob’s House for Dogs (E3015 County Highway HH, Eleva) —  a nonprofit that cares for senior, stray, and special-needs dogs —  is the community’s favorite place to volunteer. Up second is The Community Table (320 Putnam St., Eau Claire), an admirable nonprofit organization that provides a free, hot meal every day. Coming in third, Feed My People Food Bank (2610 Alpine Road, Eau Claire) offers plenty of opportunities to help alleviate hunger in the region. — Natalie Rosenkranz
