On Saturday, September 14, members of United Way of Saginaw County and its affiliates found themselves at the annual Nexteer Family Day event. Among the pony rides, monster trucks, and car show, United Way was sharing its message with Nexteer employees and their families. Members of United Way handed out goodie bags to kids and adults as they entered the event. United Way shared its tent space with many of its partner agencies also present at the event. Each agency shared information on their community services and programs along with having treats for the kids.
The residents of Fulton Street were pleased to see a collaboration of groups working together to clean up and fix homes in their area. "One Week One Street" was a week-long project hosted in June, designed to help residents in the city of Saginaw. Close to 70 homes were impacted by the efforts of volunteers in the community by painting homes, cleaning debris and minor home repairs.
