City of Fort Atkinson launches 2022 United Way workplace campaign

The City of Fort Atkinson is proud to announce it will be kicking off its 2022 workplace campaign today in support of the United Way of Jefferson & North Walworth Counties.

“The United Way of Jefferson & North Walworth Counties seeks to build inclusive communities through their mission, vision and core values. The City Council and the City’s management team support these efforts, as well as the local programs and services supported by the United Way. We encourage our employees to participate in our 2022 workplace campaign to contribute toward improving the lives of those in our communities,” said Rebecca Houseman LeMire, City Manager.

The City of Fort Atkinson will be supporting the United Way through a supply drive for BASE Fort Atkinson. City employees are collecting books, pencils, glue sticks, paper towels, wipes and white computer paper.

“We are honored the City of Fort Atkinson has once again pledged to run a United Way workplace campaign in support of our fundraising efforts,” Elizabeth Ellis-Bols, United Way executive director states. “The support we receive from the 30 or so local businesses that host campaigns for us accounts for approximately 75% of the total funds we raise annually. We recognize the effort, time, and energy that these local businesses put forth for us and our communities, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you to the entire team at the City of Fort Atkinson for believing in United Way’s mission and for trusting us with your generosity.”

The United Way of Jefferson & North Walworth Counties’ mission is to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our communities. We do that by providing support to community programs, projects and local agencies that provide critical health and human services to those in need. This network of helping services can be described as a “safety net” for those in our midst in need. Whether it is transitional housing, literacy education, after-school programs and education, health and dental care, end of life care, mentoring programs, job training or disaster relief, the United Way identifies the greatest needs in our community and helps to fund agencies that can meet those needs.
