United Way of the Black Hills $101,000 to goal

Posted:

One week remains left in the United Way campaign and the organization is reporting that they are $101,000 short of meeting the funding goals set for their 52 local non-profit organizations that provide assistance for those in need.

 

"The holiday season is a time for giving, a time for celebration, a time for family, and a time for saying thank you," said Executive Director Renee Parker.  "With so many people making year end charitable donations, we want to say thank you on behalf of United Way of the Black Hills and the 52 local non-profit organizations."   

 

"Meeting the overall goal of $2,288,000 is extremely important to the organizations that rely on the support they receive through United Way," said Executive Director, Renee Parker. "Any gift, large or small, makes a huge impact in our communities."

 

Donations stay in the area where they are raised to provide essential services and help solve community problems. Food and other emergency assistance, shelter for victims of domestic violence, counseling and advocacy for those who are struggling are a few of the services provided by United Way organizations.

 

United Way volunteers will continue to work hard to raise the funding necessary to provide valuable services to the most vulnerable population throughout Black Hills area.

 

Donating has never been easier. Donations can be made online at (www.unitedwayblackhills.org), by mail, or phone. For more information on how to contribute, contact United Way of the Black Hills at 343-5872 or at 621 Sixth Street, Suite 100, Rapid City, SD 57701.

 

The United Way fundraising campaign ends on December 31, 2013.

    You’ll have to go the extra mile if you want to be eco-friendly. The old Fairmont site where people use to drop off their recyclables and yard waste is now closed.

Karl Merbach, superintendent of the Solid Waste Operations, said the city decided to take the money it would have used to repair the Fairmont site and build the new facility.
