The Souris Valley United Way held their Third Annual Donor Recognition Luncheon today.
United Way is a big contributor to 25 local programs in the Minot area.
While the 2016 campaign saw a 17 percent decrease from last year, campaign pledges were still able to collect well over half a million dollars.
Souris Valley’s Executive Director said that number could never be reached without help from businesses and donors in the area.
(Patricia Smith/SVUW Executive Director) “We wouldn’t exist, we’ve been here since 1930 so the community has supported United Way for many years, and it’s one place that you can put your dollars and know they’re in safe hands so that we can grant them back out into the community and make a difference.”
Any organizations that would like to apply for a grant through Souris Valley United Way can do so now through March 8th.
