Across the nation, Mary Lou Young is considered a national thought leader and an agent for change. As the former President and CEO of United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, Mary Lou raised millions of dollars to create lasting change in her community.
Her legacy of service lives on with Mary Lou’s Closet. This year-round supply drive will help to mobilize basic need items for youth. Donations will be distributed through the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership and United Way’s family of funded agencies and partners.
Your donations must be new and dropped off at the United Way Johnson Controls Volunteer Center at 200 W. Pleasant St., Milwaukee. You can also send your donations directly to United Way through our Amazon Wish List.
