United Way Celebrates 95th Anniversary

The United Way of St. Clair County is celebrating their 95th Anniversary this week.  Founded in 1924, it is the oldest United Way in the State of Michigan. Formed by community leaders, the local United Way exists to provide a mechanism for everyone in the community to give what they can afford to support a network of accountable human services. Currently located on Military Street, the organization uses funds raised in St. Clair County to distribute to programs that provide services to residents of St. Clair County. The biggest fundraiser comes through an annual campaign that’s just been announced. The kickoff will be held Monday, September 9th at the Blue Water Convention Center in Port Huron. Michelle Shepley, Port Huron Community Bank President of Chemical Bank, will be the 2019 Campaign Chair, and the campaign will run through December.
