United Way of Marathon County Volunteer Connection is looking for people to rake yards. Small groups of people are needed to rake yards of elderly and disabled residents in our community. Fall yard cleanup is a great way to volunteer while adhering to safe, social distancing. Raking will take place the week of October 19-24, 2020 when it is convenient for the volunteers and the homeowner.
With the inability of larger corporate or school groups to gather, we need more families and small teams to volunteer. Groups of ten or less, are encouraged to register by October 9, 2020, to be eligible for a door prize of United Way t-shirts for your team.
National Make a Difference Day is celebrated on October 24, 2020 and is a day that brings community service to the spotlight, uniting people to improve the lives of others. It is the largest day of service in the United States.
United Way of Marathon County’s mission is to unite people and organizations in Marathon County to build a stronger community and strategically invest in education, financial stability and health priorities to improve lives now and into the future. It began in 1930 and has been a staple of the community expanding to include four coalitions and more than 39 funded partners that are invested in the education, financial stability and health of our community.
