Your support means  everything.   

When COVID-19 invaded Fond du Lac County, no one had immunity from the virus, or its economic impact. Unemployment soared. The homeless population quadrupled. For the first time in local history, almost half of the county qualified for some form of assistance.  While much of the community stood still, The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac reinvented its service and kept its doors open. Alliant Energy worked with us to create a special graphic to convey  the hope, compassion and kindness that supports our service through thick and thin.   Your support, however you share it,  means so much!
