 United Way of Langlade County recently awarded requested funds to the SS. Mary & Hyacinth Antigo Charity Fund.  

The mission of this charity is to seek out and assist those in Antigo who lack adequate food, shelter, clothing, health care, and other necessities of dignified human existence. The charity anticipates a sharp increase in need due to the ongoing financial impact of COVID-19.

The United Way of Langlade County launched a COVID-19 relief fund in March to support the agencies that are experiencing additional stress due to the pandemic. This relief fund is additional to the annual campaign that runs from October to January each year. The funds raised are specifically designated to support local agencies in need of added financial support due to the pandemic. 

To join this effort, send donations to United Way of Langlade County, P.O. Box 594, Antigo WI 54409. You can also email at langladecountyunitedway@gmail.com or find it on Facebook.
