It’s important to highlight the people and organizations that make the Chippewa Valley such an incredible place to live. Volume One readers know these institutions are doing their part and deserve our praise. Since 2009, Bob’s House for Dogs (E3015 County Road HH, Eleva) has matched strays, seniors, and special needs dogs with permanent homes. They’re not just rescuing dogs, they’re helping make families. Feed My People Food Bank (2610 Alpine Road, Eau Claire) is also here: serving a 14-county area, enabling millions of meals, and making sure no one in our community goes hungry. Our readers also love the work of the Eau Claire County Humane Association (3900 Old Town Hall Road, Eau Claire), which helps find homes for pets and provides volunteer opportunities and services. They all do incredible work, and we’re so happy they live better here! –Cullen Ryan
