Dollars donated to United Way help to support over 40 programs administered by 26 local nonprofit organizations to support the health, financial stability, education and basic needs of those in the greater Chippewa Valley who are in need. Below are single examples of the value of your donation.
$1 per paycheck
buys 10 books for young children who may otherwise have limited early literacy opportunities. By reading at home from an early age, these children become prepared for kindergarten and a lifetime of academic success.
$5 per paycheck
provides oral health supplies and fluoride varnishes for 14 children from low-income families. Providing preventative oral health care for these young children increases their capacity for academic success as poor oral health correlates with lower school performance and decreased school attendance.
$10 per paycheck
covers the cost of one Play N’ Learn group in a rural community. Parents and young children in rural towns have limited access to quality early learning experiences in their neighborhoods. Play N’ Learn groups provide parents the support they need to be their child’s first teacher and increase positive outcomes for children.
