A Message from our President
January 16, 2013
The Portage Plains
United Way has wrapped up the final numbers for their 2012 Campaign and is
happy to report that we have raised $199,324.00.
This amount represents 89% of the goal of $225,000!
We want to thank the Portage community and surrounding area for their
generous support. These funds will be used to continue providing
critical health and human care services in our community.
like to take this opportunity to thank the Member Agencies, all of our
tireless volunteers, our sponsors, our staff and our community. It
is an incredible feeling to work with people who are not only great at
what they do, but are willing to go above and beyond to help others!
The Portage Plains United Way is extremely excited for 2013 as we are
implementing changes, one of which includes the hiring of a full time
Executive Director. PPUW is growing each year and it is important to
have someone full time to take us to the next level so that we are able to
best support our community.
We encourage anyone wanting to donate,
