Description

BMO Harris Bank & Lake Area United Way Present: Santa's Summer Shuffle 5K

Did you know 1 in 4 Working Families in Lake County is on the edge of survival? Struggling Working Families are faced with hard choices daily. Put gas in the car or buy a prescription? Pay the utility bill or buy groceries? These families earn income a little above the federal poverty level and are often ineligible for government programs and supports.

Lake Area United Way believes that thriving communities begin with thriving families. We believe that working families in our community should not be faced with these difficult choices. We are on a mission to bridge the gap for Struggling Working Families in our community.

Christmas is an especially difficult time for Struggling Working Families. Many are living paycheck to paycheck and simply cannot afford to purchase gifts for their children. Lake Area United Way's Santa's Workshop for Struggling Working Families helps parents purchase gifts using "Santa Bucks" to put under the tree for their families. Volunteer elves help wrap the gifts and keep the children busy in our Santa Fun Zone.

Your registration fee helps provide gifts for these deserving children. You can help bring help and home to Struggling Working Families this Christmas. Are you in?
