Wisconsin Comes Together for Lasting Social Change
Submitted to FOCUS – Governor Scott Walker has designated the months of September and October 2017 as United Way Months in Wisconsin, in recognition of the launch of United Way annual campaigns throughout the state.
The 42 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 step up to supply the expertise and resources to mobilize lasting change.
In 2016, Wisconsin’s United Ways, serving as the primary source of private funds, collectively raised more than $123 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.
The Angell Family will be leading this year’s Marshfield Area United Way community campaign.
“We are excited and honored to help lead the 2017 Campaign. And, we look forward to working with our community members to continue to support everything that is great about United Way,” said Jason Angell.
Please join Jason and Kim and their children this fall by participating in the United Way campaign. For more information about Marshfield Area United Way’s work in the community and to find out how you can become involved, please visit www.marshfieldareaunitedway.org.
