Our volunteers and donors stepped up big time to lend a helping hand!
A message from Barbara Bates-Nelson, executive director of United Way of Northern Ozaukee:
We are so humbled by the overwhelming generosity and support we received as we faced the uncertainty and challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. To the countless volunteers who helped with the Meals on Wheels Program, fed those living in shelters, collected cleaning supplies and hygiene products, and delivered comfort care to homebound seniors, we say thank you so much!
I find strength in the generosity and unwavering support of our donors who committed to taking care of others in our neighborhoods. Because of you, we were able to reinvest over $308,000 for COVID-19 response and recovery. That helped thousands of our neighbors stay in their homes, feed their families, keep the lights on and more.
We'd like to give a big shout out to our Leadership donors who stepped up to help us in a big way:
- Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s MKE Responds Fund
- Brico Fund
- Port Washington State Bank
- Pat & Linda Foy
- Bill & Pat Moren
- Principal Financial
Among our returning workplace supporters, we want to acknowledge the following top five workplace campaigns:
- Port Washington State Bank and employees
- Charter Steel and its employees
- Kohler Company and its employees
- Ozaukee County employees
- BMO and its employees
All donations big or small make a BIG difference in our fight for our working families, our children, seniors and our vulnerable. UWNO and its partners offer hope and help where it’s needed the most.
Special thanks to Port Washington State Bank. Their role in supporting our community through the United Way and its predecessors goes back generations. They were, in fact, one of the founders of the Community Chest, which became the United Way of Northern Ozaukee. They continue to be in the top two workplace campaigns year after year. Beyond the dollars, United Way of Northern Ozaukee benefits from the leadership and support of numerous PWSB associates in multiple campaign events and in the overall operation of our organization.
