Supporting United Way

North Central Health Care United Way Committee

The United Way workplace giving campaign at North Central Health Care unites our employees behind a common goal, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community. The results can be seen in our own backyard, even as we are part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.

NCHC employees donate
more than $20,000 every year
to support local United Way efforts!

In addition to the workplace giving campaign, members of the NCHC United Way Campaign Committee meet regularly and organize participation in several service projects that are supported by employee volunteers and employee contributions collected during fundraising events at NCHC.

Ways You Can Support United Way Efforts

Each Friday, employees at all locations can support the United Way by donating money to wear jeans. To wear jeans you can donate $3 per Friday OR pay for a whole year in advance for $25. Here's how you can submit your payment:

  • Stop in NCHC Wausau Campus Volunteer Office - cash or check
  • Interoffice mail your payment via check to Volunteer Services (no cash via interoffice mail please)
