Even with all of their success, it’s off the court where the University of Wisconsin athletics department shines.

Wednesday the Badgers coaches and former players who helped out the Share Your Holidays event right here in our community.

“The community supports athletics so much that any time we can get out in the community, it’s a big deal.” said Badgers softball coach Yvette Healy. Badgers volleyball coach Kelly Sheffield added “This is an important time to give.”

The Badgers along with the community helped fill two big semi-trucks full of food important necessities for those in need for our community.
