How we live united in sheboygan county
United Way of Sheboygan County (UWofSC) identifies issues, develops partnerships, implements solutions, and measures results. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of problems.
LIVE UNITED. It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
Volunteerism is just another way you can give back to the community.
Born on Third Base
I recently had the privilege of giving an address at the
Boys & Girls Club of Sheboygan County Leadership Awards
dinner. My mission was to impress upon the attendees the
merits of donating to the Boys & Girls Club. As I stood at
the podium looking out on my audience, I couldn't help but
notice that I was addressing some of the most successful
people in the county: captains of industry, wealthy business
people, doctors, lawyers and judges. I, myself, have been
fortunate enough to find success both personally and
professionally throughout my adult life. As I have gotten
older, I have given increasing thought to the roots of that
success. Was I just "special"? Was I a harder worker than
everyone else? Were other people simply not as good as me
or, worse yet, just lazier? Doubtless, the temptation is
great to cast our personal narrative in a light most
favorable and the value of hard work and talent cannot
credibly be debated. That said, I am increasingly of the
belief that what separates the "successful" from the "non",
at least materially, are circumstances that have little to
do with being special.
