Todays Hero of the Week is a true Super Hero in our community and this recognition is long overdue!

Today we want to thank our amazing partners, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County for a handful of reasons!

While many of you probably at least know of United Way, we wanted to quickly touch on the incredible impact this chapter produces for our city. United Way believes in making the community stronger.

Our community relies on services like our food pantry to remain consistent and its partners like United Way that help us stay the course!

But providing face shields isn't the only thing United Way is doing this week! We wanted to share an absolutely outstanding campaign currently going on that helps fund some of these endeavors.

Want to support organizations like the SSNC and other non-profits United Way helps? Do you also like winning cars, motorcycles, beach resort vacations, or straight up cash?

Well here's your chance to do both!


A single gift to United Way can help hundreds of thousands of people. Since 2009, over 425,000 individuals and families struggling to meet their basic needs received food, transportation, legal, and housing assistance at the most vulnerable time of their lives.

We are so thankful to be partners with them!

That's why United Way is our...
