Join our 211 Day Celebration

On Tuesday, February 11, United Ways across the country are celebrating 211 Day, a day to celebrate and raise awareness about our vital 211 services. This cirtical resource connects our community members with the health and human services they are in need of, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for free.

Locally, United Way Manitowoc has a lot to celebrate! In 2019, due to our efforts promoting 211 across the community, Manitowoc County residents' calls to 211 increased by 40%!

To celebrate and continue to raise awareness about 211, we’re hosting a community information session, followed by a training for nonprofits and organizations at 9 am on Tuesday, February 11.
