We need your help!

Financial inequity is often seen as families struggle to elevate their financial circumstances. Several United Way funded agencies work hard to help these struggling families through tough times. The United Way raises funds which get disbursed to our 18 agencies that provide the needed service. The needs are immense. The United Way campaign runs until the first of November. Agencies help with services in our three impact areas: basic needs/income; health services; and education.

The donations come from individuals, families, retirees, employee campaigns and companies. The annual public appeal was just mailed to all households and businesses. Our response rate is typically less than 1%. Right, “way to low”. Can we count on you to do a little something this year? Every dollar helps and it all stays local. There are so many requests
through the mail, so United Way hopes you watch for ours.

United Way is driven to make a positive difference in the Merrill area. To donate send checks to Merrill Area United Way, at P. O. Box 813, Merrill 54452. Or donate through Pay Pal on this website. For further information email us at ; or call our part‐time office at
