LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Nearly $64,000 will help the Great Rivers United Way.

The donation was made this morning from Altra Federal Credit Union.

The donation is a combination of more than $51,000 of giving from employees and members and $12,000 raised during a virtual fundraiser.

It comes during a campaign for the organization as they work to help others.

“We responded very quickly to the original pandemic needs. Now we’re trying to help our non-profits recover with this campaign, and Altra is setting the stage for that,” said Great Rivers United Way executive director Mary Kay Wolf.

The total is a 9.5 percent increase over last year’s donation.
