Local restaurants have teamed up with United Way to improve lives and strengthen our community. Visit one of the participating Dining United restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner to support United Way. These restaurants have pledged to donate a portion of their proceeds toward the United Way‘s community campaign.
In 2015, United Way of 1000 Lakes is investing in more than 30 programs and services across 24 agency partners. These programs and services impacted more than a dozen communities and touch the lives of one-in-three people in the Itasca area.
Get your family, friends, or coworker together for a good time, and an even better cause! The more you eat, the more they donate. The money raised stays in the local Itasca Area and helps ensure kids stay on track to graduation; people are healthier and have strong financial futures.
