United Way of Greater Yankton is a volunteer led, volunteer driven organization. Last year over 2,600 community volunteers helped United Way and our Partner Agencies continue to make an impact on the issues that matter most.

By promoting financial stability and independence; improving people’s health; and ensuring that people of all ages can achieve their potential through access to quality educational programs, United Way is dedicated to changing lives and improving our community.  By encouraging all community members in the greater Yankton area to give, advocate and volunteer, United Way strives to show the power of living united.

 

In the spirit of living united, United Way will host its second annual Day of Caring on Saturday, June 23. Day of Caring is a one day, community wide volunteer event that allows individuals, families and organizations an opportunity to make a hands - on impact in Yankton.
