“This donation will help the Northwoods United Way fund agencies in Oneida, Forest and Vilas counties,” said Nancy Sattler, executive director for Northwoods United Way. “Ahlstrom-Munksjö Rhinelander plant employees have been long-term partners of the United Way, and we are very grateful to accept their donation.”
