BISMARCK, N.D. (KXNET) — Missouri Slope Areawide United Way in Bismarck has the mission to unite people and resources to build a better community.

KX’s Adrienne Oglesby spoke with the executive director, Jenna Gullo, to see how they’ve been achieving their goals so far this past year, and what they look forward to doing this year.

Gullo gave an update on the mission of United Way, of how people come together, and though she says it may sound cliche, how people can make a difference, but making a difference when we’re checking off the boxes for weekend hunger.

She shares they were able to reopen the doors of the homeless shelter 24/7 for the winter months.
