United Way is needed all year

To the editor:

The needs of our fellow residents have grown over the past few years and the demands placed on our partner agencies has become greater.

The goal of CC United Way is to help fund our partner agencies who respond to critical needs that will go unmet without You, the community, joining together with a willing donation. These agencies respond to our community needs all year long. No donation is too small and your donation is tax deductible.

We are now at 77 percent of our goal of $135,000 – It is not about the goal, but it is definitely about the Needs.

I would be remiss to not take the time to Thank All of the individuals, business employees who have supported their “Jeans Day”, payroll deduction participants, and local businesses for their support of our campaign not only this year, but faithfully every year.If you have not already supported this year’s United Way Campaign, the Board of Directors invite you to participate and I invite you to participate.

Make a difference today for a better tomorrow by donating online Today at coppercountryunitedway.org or mail in a check to Copper Country United Way, P.O. Box 104, Houghton, MI 49931. Our campaign ends at the close of February.

Check out our website to learn about all the services our partner agencies give to our community.
