Fort Dodge, Iowa (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
United Way of Greater Fort Dodge is a 501(C)3 public charity dedicated to supporting and uplifting families and youth. United Way of Greater Fort Dodge supports numerous organizations and agencies that help struggling families become self-sufficient and stable for the long-term. Families need a supportive community to provide social ties, enhance health, teach values and develop assets in children. When families are stable and thriving, they provide the best environment for children to grow, develop and reach their full potential academically, socially and developmentally.
These values and mission make the partnership of Linking Families and Communities and the United Way a perfect fit for the 2015 KIDZMANIA to be held from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, October 24th at the Crossroads Mall in Fort Dodge, Iowa. As a Presenting Sponsor, the financial support assists in providing fun interactive activities, stage presentations and demonstrations along with information on resources to assist families during the free event.
“The mission of the United Way is to help our youth reach their full potential so they can thrive and become productive future citizens, parents and employees. Partnering with Linking Families and Communities complements that goal,” says Randy Kuhlman, CEO of the United Way of Greater Fort Dodge. “These partnerships are made possible by the generous donations we receive each year from the residents and businesses in our community.”
“Building Hope, Changing Lives” is the theme for this year’s community campaign at the United Way. Funds raised during the community campaign are used to support programs like KIDZMANIA. The 2015-16 campaign goal is $515,000. An important fact about the funds raised is that these donations stay in the community. Out of every dollar, 99 cents remains and supports programs in Fort Dodge and Webster County.
The Giving Card is just one way the United Way says “Thanks” for donating. Purchasing a Giving Card allows for special offers and discounts at local businesses that are only available to supporters who have made a gift of at least $150 annually to the United Way. Each participating merchant has signs proudly announcing their participation in United Way's Giving Card program. Giving Cards for 2015-16 are currently available for purchase.
