The Kaukauna Community Health Associates is a volunteer organization that supports health education and health practices in the community. Members hold several fundraisers each year: Style Show/Luncheon, Scholarship Card Party, Tour of Homes, Younkers fall sale, and Love Lights program. The proceeds go to college students enrolled in classes in the health field, the City Recreation Department and Loan Closet, the Kaukauna Police and Fire/Paramedics departments, the Kaukauna Public Library, Haven of Hope, and St. Paul Elder Services. All public/parochial schools (9) in the Kaukauna School District receive funds for their first-aid stations. A baby-sitting clinic is also held for area 5th graders. The KCHA is proud to be recognized by other hospital auxiliaries for being the only group in the State of Wisconsin to continue to serve after the closure of its hospital in 1996.
