MUSCATINE, Iowa–United Way of Wilton and United Way of Muscatine are excited to jointly announce their merger. After working together for several months, both entities determined that a merger would allow United Way of Muscatine to provide more opportunities and services for Wilton residents. United Way of Muscatine will now serve all of Muscatine County.  

“We look forward to extending the services that we’ve been providing throughout the rest of Muscatine County to Wilton. Merging with the United Way of Wilton is the perfect way to make this happen,” says Shane Orr, United Way of Muscatine’s Executive Director. “With their local knowledge and our resources, we’re excited about the positive impact that we can make on the community.”

United Way of Muscatine has helped with school supply drives and the reading buddies program in Wilton over the past several months while working out the details of the merger. The United Way of Muscatine will continue to expand the services offered in the Wilton community. These opportunities include access to the Kids First Fund, school supplies and other community drives, and Reading Buddies.  The United Way of Muscatine will also expand the Day of Caring into Wilton to promote volunteerism.  Wilton non-profits will also have increased access to grant funding. Two members of the Board of Directors at United Way of Wilton will join the board at United Way of Muscatine.

Becky Brisker, Wilton Chamber & Development Board member says, “partnering with the United Way of Muscatine to provide a broader and more comprehensive service to those in our community made perfect sense. Programs and resources available through the Muscatine United Way will open up opportunities that are more inclusive and impactful for our community members.”
