Recently, more than $1.5 million in grants were awarded to organizations in Wisconsin from Otto Bremer Trust (www.ottobremer.org). Faith in Action of Marathon County (FIAMC) is extremely humbled and blessed to receive funding as a portion of those grants.
The funds received will help our organization connect seniors with volunteers through investments in online technology, as well as, ongoing operating costs, allowing FIAMC to enhance senior services and extend our footprint in North-Central Wisconsin.
Your dedication, commitment and loving-kindness to helping our most vulnerable seniors right here in Marathon County inspires us, and this year was no exception. You continued to volunteer in-person and went above and beyond to find new ways to contribute where the action is virtually.
Your beautiful heart and thoughtfulness is a gift that will be treasured in another’s heart.
Because of you, Faith in Action of Marathon County (FIAMC) continued to provide crucial services including medical transportation, grocery delivery and wellness check-in calls – which became a favorite among our care-receivers in 2020.
Even the smallest actions make the world of difference. THANK YOU for your unselfish service to others, all year!
FIAMC continues to need your value, involvement and service to others.
We continue to post our volunteer needs on United Way’s community involvement website and hope you can share this page with a friend, relative or colleague. Faith In Action Of Marathon County
THANK YOU and may you be blessed for your unselfish service to others in the year ahead.
Faith in Action Program Director Ruth Hebbe Earns United Way Dedication to Service Award in 2020
WAUSAU – Faith in Action of Marathon County (FIAMC) Program Director Ruth Hebbe was recognized by United Way on February 12, 2021, for her dedication to service in 2020.
“Ruth is a tireless advocate for our area senior residents, and 2020 was no exception,” said FIAMC Board President Eric Steinbach. “Facing an unprecedented year of challenges and restrictions due to COVID-19, Ruth’s eagerness to serve others showed resiliency, a spark for innovation, and a strong passion to continue providing services to those in need in Marathon County.”
United Way presents the Dedication to Service award to a program or executive director at a non-profit for demonstrating outstanding achievement and service to our community. Only one individual receives this award annually.
United Way of Marathon County extends their congratulations to Ruth and said, “This past year, more than ever, Ruth has worked to help bring agencies dedicated to serving seniors, together. She has a cooperative spirit and sees strength in partnerships.”
FIAMC provides area seniors with services such as wellness checks, grocery delivery, transportation for medical appointments, and friendships at no cost.
“I am truly humbled to receive this award,” concluded Hebbe. “All of this would not have been possible without the hard work and support of our volunteers, donors, board members, partnering organizations, and beyond.”
