United Way & Volunteer Services of Greater Yankton’s mission is to change lives and improve our community by mobilizing people and resources to drive strategic impact in Education, Financial Stability and Health.
In an effort to raise the final monies needed to reach the 2017 Community Campaign Goal, supporting over 52 local human service programs, United Way is conducting a GIVE 5, CHANGE LIVES challenge the month of March. GIVE 5, CHANGE LIVES asks community members to give $5 and tell 5 friends to do the same!
Look for United Way’s GIVE 5, CHANGE LIVES challenge on social media; start a social giving campaign, share with your friends and help United Way reach their record breaking Community Campaign Goal! You can also text the word YANKTON to short code 41444, to be lead to the United Way giving site.
Other ideas on how you or your organization can raise funds, get creative! Host an employee pizza party, a bake sale, or hold a “Jeans Day” at your place of employment during the month of March to raise funds for United Way & Volunteer Services of Greater Yankton. For every $5 donated, you can enter to win an iPad Mini donated by Wal-Mart. Monies raised can be brought to Yankton Hy-Vee on Thursday, March 30th and donated in your organization’s name during United Way’s GIVE 5 CHANGE LIVES, Last Blast fundraising event.
