Join us in celebrating the spirit of the holidays, and support those in need, with Dairyland Power Cooperative and Your Local Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. Four local charity organizations will each be presented with a $500 donation this holiday season. Each week, we’ll highlight an organization and share more information on how they support our community and how you can help, too, if you’re able!

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater La Crosse Region

Together with the people in our community, Habitat for Humanity of the Greater La Crosse Region helps families build and improve places to call home. They offer a range of programs from their ReClaim building materials program, to RePair assistance for low-income home owners, to building and rehabbing affordable homes for families in our region. They serve Monroe, Vernon, La Crosse, and Trempealeau counties in Wisconsin as well as Houston County in Minnesota. 100% of ReStore profits are used to build and repair homes in the Coulee Region.
