The United Way of Taylor County's annual meeting was held on March 27 at The Bailiwick, where the board of directors presented an update on the past year's work. The partnering non-profits were given an opportunity to showcase the excellent work they're doing in the community, and the United Way dispersed its annual funds.
“We're thrilled to have such incredible non-profit organizations as partners to help us make a positive impact in our community," says Angie Hupf, President of the United Way of Taylor County. "With the generous donations from our donors and event fundraising, we're able to provide essential funding to those who need it most."
This year, 13 organizations, including Black River Industries, Childcaring, Hope Hospice & Palliative Care, Jean M. Thomsen Memorial Library, Restorative Justice Programs of Taylor County, The Salvation Army, Boy Scouts of America – Samoset Council, Boy Scouts of America – Chippewa Valley, Sandbox Childcare, Stepping Stones, Taylor County Commission on Aging, Taylor County Supportive Housing, and the Western Taylor County Public Library, received funding.
Thanks to the 2023 United Way funds, seniors will receive assistance to maintain their independence in their homes, while those in need will receive basic necessities and shelter. The funds will provide comfort and care to those with terminal illnesses, offer drug and alcohol education and resources, provide quality childcare services and youth development, and deliver literacy tools through area agencies.
