Fresh Coat of Paint

A dozen JSD Professional Services staff members were thrilled to not only donate $1,500 worth of brand new reusable grocery bags to the Badger Prairie Needs Network (BPNN), but to also volunteer a full work day painting the new addition to its facility and refreshing paint in many other parts of the building.

JSD assisted BPNN with civil engineering and land surveying services for its recent facility construction, which added additional cooler space, a loading dock, increased the pantry shopping area, and expanded the outdoor shelter area for volunteers doing curbside food distribution. This is all part of a $1 million expansion project, including a large federal funding grant and other donations, to assist BPNN in offering additional emergency services for local families all around Dane County as it works with other food pantries.
