Campaign Connections


  • Ready for launch? What Floats Your Cardboard Boat? Race is just a month away. Join us for a fantastic kickoff to our annual campaign! Details here.
  • We're in the final week of Stuff The Bus. Our next bus stop is August 9 at County National Bank. Or you can drop off donated school supplies at United Way or any of the other 20 drop-off locations in Jackson County. Details here.
  • There's still time to sponsor a billboard this fall! We're continuing our partnership with Adams Outdoor Advertising. Your organization can benefit! Contact Rick Chambers at (269) 873-5820 or send an email.
  • Do you know about JobSTAR? It's an employee resource network that uses a Success Coach onsite to help remove barriers keeping people from working. Programs like JobSTAR have a great record of retaining employees. Find out how your company can participate in JobSTAR here or contact Ebone' Worthey, (517) 796-5132 or send an email.
  • We've had a staff change at United Way. Marc Daly has moved on to a new adventure with Jackson County. We appreciate his many contributions to our work over the years. Beth Shafer will be your main contact.
  • Campaign materials are nearly ready! We're highlighting our mission of helping people build a pathway to financial stability. And wait until you see this year's outstanding video! We'll have details on how to get your
    materials soon. (Okay, you twisted our arm: Here's a sneak peek of our poster!)

Thank you for everything you do!
