Employees Take Part in United Way's Leadership Day of Action

September 05, 2013

On June 21, attorneys and staff from Godfrey & Kahn volunteered for the United Way of Greater Milwaukee's Leadership Day of Action. This year, there were two exciting activities planned.

The first activity, located at the Pathfinders Southeastern Education Center (Center), had volunteers build a library to help make an educational impact on young people's lives. The Center is a specialized behavioral
re-assignment school that partners with Milwaukee Public Schools to provide targeted interventions and focus learning opportunities for students in grades six through eight. Staff members provide a structured and safe learning environment that addresses behavioral problems and personal learning challenges, which allow students to improve their behavior and learning to eventually transition back into the regular school curriculum.

The second activity was located at the Vision Forward Association where volunteers created a Zen Garden and helped clean up the grounds. Vision Forward provides education, training, therapy and support for people of all ages and stages of vision loss. Dani Machata, a shareholder on the firm's Corporate team, and Meg Kurlinski, an associate on the firm's Labor & Employment team, were two of the leaders of the volunteer efforts. Dani and Meg are part of United Way of Greater Milwaukee's Emerging Leaders program which began in 2006 to connect young leaders to the community. Emerging Leaders is a diverse group of individuals under 45 years of age who make a Leadership Level contribution of $1,200 or more to United Way and opt in to the Emerging Leaders program.
