Strengthening Our Communities Initiative

The Harvey Randall Wickes Foundation and United Way recently aligned together to create a new Strengthening Our Communities Initiative. The new initiative will focus on youth services and neighborhood development, as well as working together to create a safer community.

Sheilda Braddock has been hired as Advisor to the Wickes Foundation/Community Liaision. Braddock's position will be housed at United Way of Saginaw County and funded through the H.R. Wickes Foundation.

"We are at a special moment in time in Saginaw County and cannot afford to leave another generation of children behind," said Braddock. "This program reflects the urgency of strengthening our community through public safety programs and I am honored to serve our community in this new capacity."
