(Whitewater Unites Lives submission) Patty Harmon is a WUL Hometown Hero “For organizing both the CROP Hunger Walk, which benefits local food pantries, and the Campus & Community Spaghetti Meals.”
Patty said, “What a surprise and honor! Thank you!”
The nomination includes, “She works hard, along with Mariann Scott, for the CROP Hunger Walk organizing, getting out the word, filing out the paperwork and also creating packets for each walker. This year with COVID – 19 she has worked tirelessly to make sure that CROP Hunger Walk can still be successful. Proceeds go to the Whitewater Community Food Pantry, the Warhawk Pantry at UW-W and The Community Space.
Patty also is the organizer, along with Margie Hammerl, for the Campus & Community Spaghetti Meals. This is held at the Congregational UCC on Monday nights and feeds the students as well as the community a warm meal of spaghetti, salad, garlic bread and dessert. This takes a lot of planning to assure that there is enough food for everyone. Patty always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. She is always willing to give a helping hand!”
