SW United Way needs your help more than ever | News, Sports, Jobs


For the publisher:

I have lived in Southwest Minnesota since 1975. I grew up in Lake Benton, then moved to Marshall after graduating from Southwest Minnesota State University. I understand the needs of my neighbors on a daily basis. Even in this era of COVID, there are so many unknown factors affecting us all every day. United Way of Southwest Minnesota (UWSWMN) continues to support local programs and activities focused on the health, education, financial stability, hunger and safety / well-being of its community members.

The UWSWMN 2021-22 campaign has started and several local workplaces have already started. The need for financial support has never been greater in our community. Donations are used to help families who are victims of domestic violence, provide a bed for a homeless family and even offer tax / financial assistance. I had the pleasure of participating in the Stuff the Bus program. School supplies received are separated and then given to all local schools. There are so many services that Centraide helps fund throughout the year. That’s why this year’s campaign is so special.

There are many ways to get involved in the 2021-2022 campaign. Donating school supplies for Stuff the Bus or books for the Little Red Bookshelf program are some options. UWSWMN is always looking for volunteers to help with the many activities planned. You can make a one-time financial donation, payroll deduction, or sponsor an event with the proceeds going to UWSWMN.

You can donate online at www.unitedwayswmn.org or you can mail your donation to United Way of Southwest Minnesota, PO Box 41, Marshall MN 56258.

Your support helps United Way of Southwest Minnesota achieve its mission of supporting every person in every community, every day of the year.
