United Way of Racine County

A Special Donation to United Way that Hits Close to Home

Written by: Neil Buchanan, SVP | Cash Management & Business Banking

I am very excited to announce that myself, along with Parker Degroot (CSB employee), are honored to present our #Gift2Giving donations to United Way of Racine County! So you may be asking... Why United Way?

Well, I've had many opportunities to learn about United Way through my job at Community State Bank. We are a part of their annual campaign and have the opportunity to personally donate to the organization. This past spring, my wife, Steph, started working at United Way of Racine County. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of learning even more about all of the impactful ways that United Way supports the communities we live in.

Our family first had the opportunity to get involved with United Way's “Day of Caring”, an annual event that encourages volunteerism. We were able to help conduct a 3k fun run at Julian Thomas Elementary School. It was great seeing so many families come to their local school to participate! We also had the opportunity to attend the Mini Golf Outing fundraiser which was a lot of fun, too. At each of th​​​​​​ese events I was able to learn about the unique ways that United Way supports the communities of Racine County. 

Here are a few examples of how United Way supports our community: 

United Way’s focus is to help people, mostly children, build the right skills to live productive, healthy, independent lives. Their impact reaches every corner of Racine County, from Love Inc. to the LIFT Schools, the HALO shelter to Imagination Library, covering essential needs to make our communities a better place to live! Thank you United Way!
