MARQUETTE COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - The United Way of Marquette County is kicking of their annual campaign with the 5 Days of Caring. Every day this week the organization is emphasizing a call to action, encouraging residents to support area non-profit organizations.

Monday, August 30 - Donate to a supply drive or sign up with Yoopers United volunteer network

Tuesday, August 31 - Support a young person as a mentor, share what you learn with your network

Wednesday September 1 - Register to vote, write an email to Congress, or share your story with #WhyIGiveWednesday

Thursday, September 2 - Call to check in on your neighbor or lend a hand with yard work for a neighbor in need

Friday, September 3 - Keep this good thing going with a donation and a long-term volunteer commitment

United Way Executive Director Andrew Rickauer says the 5 Days of Caring are designed to give people an opportunity to give back other than a monetary donation.

“There are so many other ways to get involved, and not everybody is able to make a financial commitment, or they want to take it one step further,” said Rickauer. “We’re trying to bring a lot of the needs in the community together in one place to show that there are many ways to help the community.”

Participants are encouraged to share how they get involved online. To share your story or for more information on the 5 Days of Caring and the United Way of Marquette County, click here
