MENOMONIE — Governor Scott Walker has designated the months of September and October 2014 as United Way Months in Wisconsin, in recognition of the launch of United Way annual campaigns throughout the state.
The 43 United Ways across Wisconsin each work within their local communities to meet local needs, using funds raised locally. Together, United Ways work to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a good quality of life: education, income, and health. We all win when a child succeeds in school, families are financially stable, and people have good health. Every year Wisconsin really steps up — individuals, businesses, and organizations – to supply the passion, expertise, and resources to create lasting change.
In 2013, Wisconsin’s United Ways, serving as the primary source of private funds, collectively raised over $122 million to support human services. Wisconsinites have many ways to give, advocate and volunteer with United Way to be a part of the change and help build a brighter future for all.
Last year, the United Way of Dunn County raised over $300,000, providing funds to 28 organizations and programs, and worked to address financial stability through the United Way Gifts In Kind program by distributing over $750,000 in new and used merchandise to nonprofits, families and individuals in Dunn County. This year, the United Way of Dunn County has set a 10% increase as a campaign goal. The United Way of Dunn County, urges everyone to become involved.
