United Way Months Proclaimed
Wisconsin Comes Together for Lasting Social Change
Wisconsin Rapids, WI (August 30, 2019) - Governor Tony Evers has designated the months of September and October 2019 as United Way Months in Wisconsin, in recognition of the launch of United Way annual campaigns throughout the state.
The 40 United Ways across Wisconsin each work within their local communities to meet local needs, using funds raised locally. Together, United Ways fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. We all win when individuals have good health, a child succeeds in school, and families are financially stable. Every year, Wisconsin community members and businesses really step up to supply the expertise and resources to mobilize lasting change.
In 2018, Wisconsin's United Ways, serving as the primary source of private funds, collectively raised over $118 million to support human services. Wisconsinites have many ways to give, advocate andvolunteer with United Way to be a part of the change and help build a brighter future for all.
Last year, United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties raised funds to support 33 programs, 6 coalitions and several community initiatives. The chair of this year’s campaign, Nicole Pemble, urges everyone to become involved. Interested persons should call Taylor Pemble at 715-421-0390.
