Oshkosh Area United Way (OAUW) continues to collect much-needed essential supplies for local agencies to be stocked in the new LIVE UNITED Community Vault located at their new location on 16 Washington Avenue, Oshkosh.

“33% of households in our County cannot afford their basic needs, 41% in Oshkosh, and the need for services is stuck well above pre-pandemic levels,” said Beth Oswald, OAUW President and CEO. “By collecting and stocking supplies in our new spacious vault, we hope to reduce expenses for the area nonprofits so that their limited dollars can be put towards the programs that serve our friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers in our community.”

Area nonprofits will be able to access these supplies year-round to better assist our community. 

OAUW is currently low on or out of shampoo, body wash, deodorant, shaving cream, razors, laundry detergent, pull-ups, baby wipes, toilet paper, paper towels, plates, and plastic silverware.
