United Way of Bemidji Area’s “Week of Caring”

The United Way of Bemidji Area is encouraging community members to participate in socially-distanced projects and donation drives during the “Week of Caring” this week.

With the week’s planned events, community members will be able to learn more about local United Way Partner Agencies and provide the opportunity to give back to those in need.

“Our success is because of you – the hand-raisers and doers who help to build a stronger, caring community through your advocacy, your support, and your volunteerism,” said Denae Alamano, Executive Director of the United Way of Bemidji Area.

Each day of the week, on the United Way website, are a list of activities for families, for businesses and ways to contribute.

Today, for instance, community members are encouraged to collect winter items and donate them, so the United Way can distribute them to families and individuals in need.
