Key Cooperative Supports United Way
September 17, 2013
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE our participation in the first ever annual United Way campaign at Key Cooperative. Employees and their families will be contributing to this great organization, which focuses on local work that will impact individuals and families. For many United Way chapters, that means investing in the building blocks of a quality life through programming and projects in the areas of education, income and health. The problems facing our communities are becoming increasingly complex. United Way is in a unique position to identify those issues, find solutions and attract the community investment needed for sustained change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Key Cooperative is pleased to be helping make our communities even stronger and more vibrant.
From August 1 to October 31, Key Cooperative employees will be participating in small contests, bake sales and Cy-Hawk penny wars—all events to have fun and raise funds for United Way. Our goal for the first ever campaign is 100% awareness and participation.
Why did we choose United Way?
Because even small donations can make a difference. By contributing just $1 a day to the United Way for a year:
- The Salvation Army can purchase 2,600 pounds of food at the Food Bank of Iowa to feed 2,188 residents
- Lutheran Services in Iowa can provide 121 hours of Crisis Child Care
- Youth and Shelter Services can reunify a runaway teen with a family
- The American Red Cross can deploy two Red Cross workers and relief supplies that include comfort kits, clean-up kits, coolers, rakes, insect repellent, sunscreen and hand sanitizer
