The United Way of Siouxland launched their 2018-2019 campaign Wednesday at Long Lines Family Rec Center, saying they hope to raise over $3.44 million.
The United Way of Siouxland gives donations directly to local programs and services in the area, focusing on health, education, and financial stability of every person in Siouxland. They supported 74 programs in 2017.
“A gift to United Way of Siouxland is an investment in our community,” says Darin Daby. “With a focus on health, education and financial stability, every dollar donated goes directly to fund local programs that help support kids, adults and families. Through the Community Impact process, you know your gift to United Way of Siouxland supports those most in need.”
United Way of Siouxland President Heather Hennings echoed Daby’s comments saying, “The impact we make and the results we see are the true measures of our success. Our work to raise awareness about local issues and find long-term solutions for our tri-state community is accomplished thanks to the generous response from the people of Siouxland.”
To help promote their goal, the United Way of Siouxland is offering a few perks. Individuals that donate $100 or more will get a “Giving Card” that gives them discounts to Siouxland businesses. For any organizations that can complete their United Way campaigns by November 15 will have a full-page ad in the Sioux City Journal thanking them.
In 2017, the United Way of Siouxland also gave three FOCUS Grants and three Small Grants to programs in the area for projects that have outcomes aligning with their goals.
