For the first time, United Way kicked off the annual Community Campaign right here at our Milwaukee office! More than 350 community members gathered to hear from our 2018 campaign co-chairs, celebrate our $56 million fundraising and 40,000 hour volunteer goals, and tour the brand-new Johnson Controls Volunteer Center.  

Now it’s time to get to work, and we can’t do it without you! Here are some fun and easy ways to get involved with United Way this season:
