As our 2012 campaign nears its close, I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to YOU!
Thank you for your support of United of Inner Wisconsin. Without it we would not be able to provide funding for programs that benefit so many people in need in our communities.
If you have not given, there is still time to make a donation. Your donations are vital, as we still need to raise $30,000 to reach our goal, which will enable our 44 partner programs to serve nearly 20,000 people in south Wood and Adams counties.
Our campaign runs through Dec. 31, and we would be happy to accept your donation or pledge for this year. For more information, you can reach us at 715-421-0390 or go to our website at www.uwiw.org and click on the "GIVE" button.
Also thank you to those who gave their time to help get all of the campaigns under way. From division chairmen to loaned executives to employee company coordinators and everyone in between who was involved with a campaign, we could not have made this happen without your help - THANK YOU!
Please join us at our Donor and Volunteer Thank You Celebration from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at Hotel Mead. We will celebrate those who have given of their time and resources to help make this campaign a success. Thanks to our generous sponsors, this event is provided at no cost to United Way.
I am proud to be part of these generous and caring communities. 2012 has been a successful year for United Way of Inner Wisconsin and our partner agencies. We look forward to 2013 and the opportunity to continue to meet the vital needs in our area.
Tari Jahns is chief executive officer of the United Way of Inner Wisconsin.
