Our Campaigns & Activities
The United Way of Delta County runs a local community fundraising campaign each fall, raising money that stays right here in Delta County to support worthwhile human service programs administered by our United Way Member Agencies. The official campaign timeline is September 1 – December 31, but your donation is welcome at any time of the year! (You can even donate online via the “GIVE” button on our home page.)
Campaign activities and events include:
Soup’r Chili Challenge
This popular event is our community campaign kickoff and typically is scheduled for the second Tuesday in September each year. Come on over to the U.P. State Fairgrounds for delicious samplings of our area’s best soup and chili recipes, and learn more about the many programs that depend on the United Way to bring important services to Delta County residents.
Got a special soup or chili recipe of your own to WOW the crowd? Yours could be the winner! To register as a chef, contact us at or call (906) 786-3736.
Small Business Blitz
United Way volunteers hit the streets of Delta County on the last Wednesday of September and visit our local small businesses. For every pledge made that day, your business will be entered into a drawing for 25 FREE radio ads! For more information, contact us at or call (906) 786-3736.
