Great Rivers United Way getting holiday helpers connected

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – You can get connected with ways to help people in our area with their holiday needs.

Great Rivers United Way has put together a “Holiday Helpers and Wish Lists” section on the “U Get Connected” website.

Opportunities include seasonal initiatives from one-day events to ongoing efforts.

You also can help by making donations.

“It’s a one-stop shop for people who want to do a holiday-related good deed,” said Anne Paape, GRUW’s community engagement coordinator. “And they’re connected directly with the agencies who are working with those folks every day and especially at holiday time.
