Each month, Community Shares of Wisconsin and  sponsors, Budget Signs and Specialties, Isthmus, and 105.5 Triple M Radio, recognize two outstanding member agency volunteers who have given their time to our member groups and to our community. These volunteers are seldom in the news but are always on the front lines of critical issues that make our community a better place to live. Community Shares of Wisconsin is a member of Community Shares USA.
