Community Connection is a committee of Positively Pewaukee was formed to provide assistance to families in need in the Pewaukee School System, the Pewaukee Food Pantry and local churches. We work with United Way to provide filled backpacks to students in need each fall.  We work with the school system to provide clothing items for children in crisis, along with family needs.  We work only through the school system, churches and the Food Pantry.  We do not do direct gives.

There are numerous resources and nonprofit organizations in Waukesha County that are willing and able to help.  Please don’t wait until you are having a financial emergency. If you know that money is getting tight, please call 211 and ask for help. The professionals there will guide you toward the best available resources. 

Pewaukee also has a Food Pantry that is wonderful to work with.  You are also welcome to use the Waukesha Food Pantry for food and general supplies. Both will help you to the best of their ability, and please be assured that all assistance provided will be kept completely confidential. There are many other available programs listed on the Resource Sheet.

All the funds used for these projects are provided through donations from the community.  You can help by making a monetary donation to this effort by clicking here: DONATE or sending a check to Positively Pewaukee,  112 Main St, Pewaukee, WI 53072 with “Community Connection” in the memo.  We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and all gifts are tax deductible. 

Another important part of this committee is working with students on different projects throughout the year, teaching them the importance of being part of your community.  We have a Youth Board comprised of nine high school students who are making a difference a difference in Pewaukee.

This is a true sign of community members helping fellow community members. For more information on how the program works or how you can help,  contact Elaine Kroening at 262-695-9735 or
