Today we continue to make a difference in the community!
In the 2000s we moved into our current location and adopted the LIVE UNITED slogan.
In the 1990s we celebrated our 50th Anniversary and added the Volunteer Center to the office.
In 1987, United Way of America celebrated it's Centennial Anniversary!
In the 1970s we finally became the "United Way" and adopted the logo with the hand, rainbow and person. We also saw familiar events, such as United Way Day at McDonalds; our very first Annual Report; and our first Executive Director.
During the 1960s, our organization continued to grow.
During the 1950s we saw another name change to "The United Fund" and we saw a change in giving similar to what we do today... including the introduction of the "Fair Share" concept.
Our organization was created in 1942 as a Community War Chest. We later became the Community Chest after World War II ended.
We recently did a Volunteer Spotlight story on the shawl and baby cap knitters at Aspirus Riverview Hospital!
On February 17, 2017, Assumption High School hosted a music competition so the students who aren't involved got to do volunteer projects - all coordinated by our Volunteer Center of course! Students worked at The Family Center, The Boys and Girls Club, The South Wood County YMCA and some did craft projects for Meals on Wheels/Heartland Hospice at the Centralia Center!
