Bill Breider, President and CEO of the YMCA of the Fox Cities shares his thoughts about United Way Fox Cities with WHBY listeners this month as a “Fox Cities Viewpoint”. In case you miss it on the radio, Bill generously provides us his thoughts for this week’s blog:
 
There are many things that make the Fox Cities a great place to live, work, and raise a family. We are fortunate to have access to a strong network of health and human service programs. The reality is, that in a given year, thousands of people – including our co-workers, neighbors, friends, and maybe even ourselves – turn to one or more parts of this valuable network for assistance. The future of these services are made possible by the support of the entire community.
 
United Way Fox Cities inspires us to pause, look beyond the daily excitement of our personal and professional lives, and remember that we are part of a community here in the Fox Cities.
 
United Way Fox Cities is the one and only local, non-profit organization that exists to impact and benefit the entire community. Their focus is not just one issue, service, or population.  They are working every day to improve lives and create lasting change in our community by:

  • Helping children succeed in school;
  • Building healthy families;
  • Assisting people in meeting their basic needs;
  • And improving access to mental health services
