United Way of Mason County exceeds $330,000 campaign goal

LUDINGTON – United Way of Mason County recently announced that it has exceeded its 2022/2023 campaign goal of $330,000.

“The funds raised will support valuable programs that help Mason County residents, such as the Lakeshore Employer Resource Network, Mason County Family Link, and 2-1-1, which are managed by UWMC” states a press release. “Along with those programs, UWMC also utilizes the dollars raised to award funding to local organizations requesting support for programs and initiatives that focus on children and youth reaching their potential, individuals and families becoming financially stable, and people practicing healthy lifestyles. The UWMC Community Investment Committee, made up of Mason County residents and UWMC board members, is currently meeting to review the proposals submitted and will release the 2023 grantees in May.

“United Way of Mason County would like to thank the 2022/2023 campaign co-chairs Alex and Bailey Richert for their support and dedication to this campaign, as well as the campaign committee of Sue Brown, Steve Brown, and Derek Heimerdinger.”

“We are so grateful to the Mason County community for coming together to support the valuable programs and organizations that we support and to the individuals who donated their time and talent to make this campaign a success. It truly shows that when we all come together, we can make a difference in our community,” said Lynne Russell, executive director of United Way of Mason County.

“We are very thankful to live in a community that shows such strong support for the essential charities that provide for local residents that need assistance. Reaching this goal would not be possible without the strong partnership with several locally owned businesses, many generous individuals, and the wonderful events that were put on to raise funds and awareness for the United Way of Mason County. Attaining this goal means local individuals who are in need of extra support will be able to count on the programs that receive funding from this campaign,” said Alex and Bailey Richert in a combined statement.

“United Way of Mason County remains committed to furthering its mission of improving lives and strengthening the community,” states the press release.
