Help United Way create a quilt of services

Why should I give to United Way?  I already give to my favorite nonprofit.  

 

Think of your favorite nonprofit as a quilt square.  United Way grants dollars to nearly 30 nonprofit organizations whose mission is to help people with their basic needs, education, healthy lifestyles and financial stability.  Each of these organizations is a quilt square.

 

If someone goes to one of those quilt squares for help, chances are that they also need help from one or more of the other quilt squares. A gift to United Way makes sure that all of those quilt squares are sewn together and connected to make a nice warm quilt that we can wrap around the person who is seeking help for themselves or their family.

 

The nonprofits that make up these quilt squares take the time to talk to guests to make sure that all of their needs are being met, not just the one that they came in about.  They will make the referrals and help their guests access the resources that represent that quilt. Typically, it is not just a ride, or the cost of childcare, or mental health resources that a guest needs.  They need at least two or more squares to help them during a challenging time. 

 

This year, we hope that you will make your charitable contribution to help over one third of our Door County who might need that quilt of services during 2022.  Thank you.
