The Joliet Slammers announced on Giving Tuesday that they are partnering with United Way of Will County throughout December. During the month, the Slammers will donate 20% from all merchandise sales to United Way.
United Way of Will County helps to fund a number of organizations, some of which include: Warren-Sharpe Community Center, Bags of Hope, Will County Children's Advocacy Center, Disability Resource Center, The Cancer Support Center, CASA of Will County, American Red Cross, and more that can be found at www.uwwill.org. United Way of Will County fights for the self-sufficiency, health, safety, and education of every person in Will County. However, it's not just the positive, sustainable change that we are able to make within these four areas that creates community impact, it's how they work together to lift up the whole community.
"United Way of Will County is thankful and excited to be partnering with the Joliet Slammers! We look forward to enjoying their hospitality and celebrating good times at the stadium!" Sarah Oprzedek, Interim CEO of the United Way of Will County.
"During these difficult times, we know how important it is to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years. We're thrilled to be able to donate back to United Way of Will County which has so many partnerships with local charitable organizations," said Slammers General Manager Heather Mills.
