5 Ways to Spread Positivity This Season
The holidays are officially here! And while this is typically viewed as a joyful time, it will be difficult for many families – this year especially. But you can help make a real difference. Here are five ways you can help today:
Give – in any way you can. While Giving Tuesday has come and gone, we feel that every day is a good day for giving! With the pandemic continuing to put a strain on our community, needs are greater than ever before. People need help paying for food, rent, utilities and more. And we need you. We need more people to come together to help continue crucial services into 2021 and beyond.
Together, we can move the needle in the community’s campaign and help our neighbors in need. When you give to United Way, you can be confident that your gift directly impacts access, opportunity and focuses on the systemic changes that need to happen now to make get more families on a pathway to stability.
Your donation can help! Give today to help us build a Dane County where everyone can succeed in school, work and life. Did you know? Taxpayers who don’t itemize may deduct up to $300 in charitable contributions, paid from now until December 31, on your 2020 federal tax return.
Check out our Holiday Wish List. We need your help spreading some much-needed holiday cheer! And that’s where the Holiday Wish List comes in. As the premier resource for holiday volunteerism and donations, it gives people in our community the opportunity to share the giving spirit. It’s simple – all you have to do is read through the agency descriptions and categories to find a need that you can fill and get in touch with the right contacts to make it happen.
Attend the Working for All Webinar. On Thursday, December 10 we’ll be hosting the final installment of our Working for All Webinar Series. This month, we’ll be discussing our community’s current needs regarding access to healthcare and mental health resources. Register today to learn how you can help support health and well-being for local families.
