Employees take part in United Way's leadership "Day of Action

August 15, 2014

In June, United Way chapters across the country participated in a nationwide "Day of Action" by coordinating volunteer activities throughout the country. Godfrey & Kahn again provided the corporate sponsorship for this fun event and attorneys and staff volunteered at two YMCA locations in Milwaukee.

The John C. Cudahy YMCA had Godfrey & Kahn volunteers help build a community garden, clean up trails and engage with youth in baseball, basketball and swimming games. In addition to providing child care, preschool and day camps, the John C. Cudahy YMCA is home to the Miracle League of Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s first universally-accessible baseball league for children with physical and mental disabilities.

The second location was the South Shore YMCA, where Godfrey & Kahn volunteers built flower and vegetable gardens, painted early childhood education rooms, assisted with facility cleaning and refereed soccer games. The South Shore YMCA provides traditional YMCA programs and services for kids and families in Cudahy, South Milwaukee, Oak Creek, Franklin and surrounding areas. Each year over spring break, the South Shore YMCA offers a "Begin-to-Swim" program, that provides hundreds of area children the chance to learn how to be safer in the water at little or no cost to parents.

Meg Kurlinski, an associate in the firm’s Labor, Employment & Immigration Practice Group, led the volunteer effort. Meg is part of United Way of Greater Milwaukee’s Emerging Leaders Council, 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.
