Racine County Eye readers are really great. Not only do you spring into action when someone (person or pet) is in need, you are also involved on a more personal level with groups and organizations throughout our community.

We’ve always known about the amazing generosity that so often gets overlooked because of the tough issues we face throughout the greater Racine area. We thought it was time to shine a brighter light on the extraordinary everyday things you do to make the fabric of our community stronger.

Joan Roehre Just spent the day with RUSD 7th graders at Zoo Beach testing water quality, bacteria, turbidity and more with Alliance for the Great Lakes! Most of my water focused volunteerism is in Guatemala, but I do involve classrooms from SE WI for that. I do volunteer regularly with the Over Our Head Players at the 6th Street Theater and have done so 10 years

Adam Bilgo Sr. I’ve also donated a few custom Radio Flyer wagons that I build for various local benefits, as raffle items. I’ll be donating a special one for this year’s Peacefest. I make sure all the neighborhood kids have bikes, and help/teach them to maintain their bikes.
