Morrison County United Way addresses the greatest needs in our community, focusing on the areas of income, education, and health.
Like United Ways across America, Morrison County United Way is focused on the building blocks for a better life. We support local agencies who provide services in four critical areas:
Life Skills: Improving people's emotional, mental, and physical well-being
Youth, Families, Home: Helping children and families reach their potential
Seniors: Engaging our senior citizens to enrich lives throughout our communities
Basic Needs: Providing a safety net for those in need.
But Morrison County United Way does so much more. . .we seek to make a direct impact on our community by bringing the Imagination Library to children in our community. The Imagination Library provides children age birth to five with a new, age appropriate book each month free of charge to the family. With the support of local service organizations and generous individual donors, over 1,000 children in our county can look forward to receiving a book in the mail each month. Depending on their age at enrollment, a child will build a library of up to 60 books over their involvement in the program. Because of our collaboration with the Dollywood Foundation, it costs just $36 a year for a child to be part of the Imagination Library - that's just 10 cents a day! We invite you to be a part of promoting early childhood literacy by sponsoring a child. . .or two!
Tools for School is our newest program that was started in 2017. This program provides free school supplies to children in need which allows them to go back to school prepared to learn. To date, hundreds of Morrison County children in 4 school districts (Royalton, Little Falls, Pierz and Swanville) have been impacted by this program. The average cost is $30 per child - that's just 8 cents a day! We invite you to be a part of a child's first day of school by sponsoring a child. . .or two!
