Check Off” for the United Way Fund- The United Way of Marquette County is encouraging Michigan residents to “check off” for the United Way Fund on Michigan tax returns. Form 4642 on the 2016 income tax return will allow people to donate all or part of their Michigan tax return to the United Way Fund, a fund created to help Michigan’s needy families with their most basic needs. In accordance with Public Act 527 of 2008, the funds are provided to communities “for basic needs, including, but not limited to, food, clothing & shelter.”
Given today’s economic conditions & high unemployment in Michigan, more families are at risk than ever before & the need for assistance has never been greater. The Michigan Legislature has created a quick & easy way to donate resources that help ease the burden for many Michigan families. This year, please be sure to “check off” for the United Way Fund. All proceeds will directly benefit the United Way in your community.
The United Way of Marquette County, like most United Ways, are experiencing increases in requests for funding & services from agencies, which are facing budget shortfalls. At the same time, fewer people are able to make the donations they might have in the past, so fundraising has been a bit of a struggle. The Michigan tax check off is an easy and painless way to help those in our community. Because of everyone’s efforts, last year the United Way of Marquette County received almost $300, which helped provide food and clothing for several local families that needed them. For more info, call the United Way of Marquette County at 226-8171.

An exciting new caregiver support program is now available in the U.P.! The Upper Peninsula Commission for Area Progress (UPCAP) is the first agency in the State to provide this nationally recognized evidence informed training. The program called REST, which stands for Respite Education & Support Training, is an originally designed educational course that provides training to adults & teens who want to offer care to those in need & provide assistance (respite) to their caregivers. As a REST companion (volunteer or paid), you give the gift of your time to provide a valuable service. As a REST trained companion/respite provider you will spend one-on-one time with an adult or senior, giving only as much time as you are willing & able to give. The ultimate goal of this training course is to assist individuals to become effective companions & respite workers by learning the 3 key steps of support: Prepare, Care & Connect. One of the biggest issues experienced by caregivers is burn out! Often caregivers report increased stress & decreased health & well-being do to their care giving responsibilities. REST program research data has shown that caregivers who have received assistance (respite) from a REST trained companion report a marked decrease in overall stress. This one day training is customizable & can be adapted to meet the needs of specific agency staff or volunteer organizations. There is no cost for this training & participants who completed the training receive a certificate of completion & follow-up & support. If you are interested in participating in a REST training, contact 1-800-305-8137, dial 2-1-1 or visit upcap.org
