United Way Community Fest kicks off


United Way's Community Fest starts with "United We Can," a contest in which organizations build sculptures out of canned goods and non-perishable food items.

"United We Can" is part of Community Fest. The event benefits the Marathon County Hunger Coalition.

"We're all about putting food, nutritious food on peoples' tables," Mary Ellen Marnholtz, the chairman of Community Fest, said.

Volunteers will be working until tomorrow. Celebrity judges will be there in the afternoon. Community members can purchase voting tickets with a dollar or a non-perishable food item.

Community Fest continues on Saturday with a 5k race, food vendors, and children's activities.
