An Amazing Gift to the Community!

For the past few years, this organization was working on plans to build a community center in Holmen.  Past discussions with Barb and Dave Skogen introduced them to them the need to provide important services to the youth,  retired adults and others in this community.

In July of 2019, the Skogens decided to donate the former Festival Foods building to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater La Crosse.   They will also pay for the renovation costs for the Club and to add gym space.  The Boys and Girls Clubs will operate after-school programs for the youth of the community.

Included within the building will be space for area non-profit partner organizations to provide programming for the community residents and a common space for retired adults to gather.  Discussions have also begun with the Holmen Area School District to see if some of their programs could be offered in this renovated facility.  This amazing lead gift from the Skogens was announced on July 24, 2019.

Design of the new facility is now underway.

Here is a preliminary concept:

Community Challenge 2020

It is understood that this type of programming requires ongoing financial support before renovation can begin in 2020, so the Holmen Area Community Center has agreed to conduct a new Capital Campaign to raise an additional $2,000,000 to support the development of the community center, contribute to the cost of renovations of the community space and to provide for the first three years of programming expenses for all programs.

If the local community steps up to raise the money, the dreams of the organization will become a reality and the facility could be open within a year.  Click here to support the project.
