The United Way of 1000 Lakes Unleash Your Inner Hero Campaign is building momentum, hitting the halfway point of the 2014 goal.
Currently, the campaign has raised $151,786, and stands at 50% of the $300,000 goal and so far, 638 donors have already pledged their support.
The United Way campaign supports local programs that help feed hungry families, assist the victims of domestic violence, provide child care for working parents, keep youth on track to graduation, provide shelter for the homeless and help for the sick – among a myriad of other services in the Itasca Area.
If you have already made your United Way gift, thank you. If you haven’t yet given, please consider a gift of any amount – even $5 can make an impact. That’s the beauty of United Way: when all those small gifts are combined, they create big change in our community.
Giving is easy. Here’s how you can help create lasting change in the lives of thousands of people right here in the Itasca area:
