United Way gives more than $170,000 to local non-profits

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Empire United Way awarded $178,811 in grants to several area non-profits. 

Grant amounts ranged from $3,850 to $40,000, and funding went specifically to new or expanding programs.

"Our community has many emerging and new needs," Deb Hayes, Sioux Empire United Way Community Impact Chair, said. "United Way has a history of providing grant funds to programs that are being developed to serve unmet needs in our community."

Eight area non-profit programs received grant awards. The funds will be used for programs that provide a variety of services that include: providing local high school students the opportunity to build a "green home" for a low-income family, supporting an environment and supervision for individuals with dementia during the day, and pre-kindergarten services prior to the start of school for incoming students who may need assistance preparing for school.

Sioux Empire United Way partners with non-profit programs in Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha and Turner Counties.  For more information regarding Sioux Empire United Way or the grant process, please visit www.seuw.org.
