Walk for Warmth – Utility Assistance Available

W4W Logo (2) (640x412) (300x193)The 7th Annual Walk for Warmth was a success! To date we have raised over $18,000.00.

W4W is a utility assistance program here at United Way. Our goal is to help families in Cheboygan County stay warm! Our funds are used to help fill gaps in the system, targeting families that work and don’t qualify for other assistance programs. One unexpected event can leave families short on funds, we want to help keep them on track. We also help those who get assistance from other agencies as well, there are limits and guidelines we follow to make sure our funds are used in an efficient way. We also have budgeting classes to help families become self sufficient.
