Walker proclaims United Way Months
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Gov. 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 communities to meet needs using funds raised locally. Together, United Ways fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in their communities. Wisconsin’s United Ways, serving as the primary source of private funds, collectively raised more than $123 million in 2016 to support human services.
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,” Jason Angell said.
