The Portage Plains United Way gave this week's featured presentation at the Portage Rotary club luncheon. Executive Director Mandy Dubois says she related some personal history of her association with the United Way.
"I came to Rotary and I wanted to just give them kind of a brief history of myself, where I cam from and my connection with the United Way long before I became the executive director. That was important to me. I wanted to talk about how we've added two new agencies this year to receive funding from the Portage Plains United Way, which is something that hasn't happened in at least ten years from what I've looked back at."
Dubois says she also shared their list of upcoming events.
"I wanted to talk about our upcoming events because, other than corporate workplace and individual donations, that's where we raise a lot of our money for our campaign. I just want to encourage people to support the Portage Plains United Way in any way they possibly can. I know that we all aren't financially able to donate. But, you know, it might be just supporting one of our special events, and bringing your family out to that, or it could be volunteering your time with us to help us at special events or in the office. So, I just encourage everybody to get involved with our community, invest their time or their money with the Portage Plains United Way, and make a difference."
