United Way A-Dress Campaign Kickoff Event!

Written by Leslie Means

Here’s your chance to give back to area non-profit agencies that give so much to this community.  

United Way of the Kearney Area is preparing to launch its campaign for 2016, with an online event called A-Dress.  It showcases women leaders in the Kearney community advocating for local agencies.  These women each have their own crowdfunding page to share their goal of raising $2,500 for each perspective agency represented.  

Click on this link to read more about each agency represented and to donate!

Hurry though – this only lasts until September 24th.  

The kickoff for the general campaign will be at a United Way Business After Hours from 5-7 p.m. on September 24.   The spokeswomen for each agency will be introduced, and final totals will be announced.  The Business After Hours event will be held at the United Way office at 4009 Sixth Ave., Suite 19. 

These agencies help so many throughout the community.  Please donate if you can and help make this campaign event a huge success!

Below you’ll find each agency listed and their spokeswoman.  You’ll recognize a couple as Her View From Home contributors, too!  Be sure to click on each link below to learn more about each agency!  

Thanks for your support!
