Thank a volunteer today

Here in Marathon County, volunteerism is at a whopping 55%, according to United Way's LIFE Report. That's more than twice the national average of 26.5% (the latest statistic available from the Corporation for National and Community Service).

Volunteers throughout Marathon County are tutoring children, helping seniors live independently, assisting in food pantries, building homes, working in shelters, taking care of surrendered pets, coordinating clothing and other "basic needs" donations - the list goes on and on.

During National Volunteer Week, April 12-18, take a moment to thank and recognize people you know who volunteer. They are creating a better community for all of us.

And, if you'd like to make a difference by volunteering in our community, United Way Volunteer Connection offers a free online database of volunteer opportunities. The database offers one-time jobs, ongoing placements, and everything in between. Or, you can call Sarah at 715.298.5722 or email sthurs@UnitedWayMC.org. We can help you find that "just right" volunteer opportunity or service project that matches your skills, interests, and schedule.
