After Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday, it’s time to turn the focus from shopping to supporting your local community on Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving. United Way of Marathon County is asking for your help to feed hungry children in our community.
Over 8000 students in Marathon County qualify for free or reduced school breakfast and lunch. Some of their families struggle to provide enough food for weekends, snow days and vacations. They also may not have snacks available to send to school with their children. Kids who are hungry can’t focus on learning.
On Giving Tuesday, you can help. Simply go to www.unitedwaymc.org and click on the Giving Tuesday link. You’ll have the option to purchase breakfast kits, snack kits and NOW (Nutrition on Weekends) bags. All food will help kids here in Marathon County.
No child in our community should be hungry. You can help. Donate now for Giving Tuesday.
