The 2013 United Way Day of Action was a success indeed! 170 volunteers fanned out into the community with 20 different organizations to do some good.
Parters for Affordable Housing hosted a group from Ridley Inc. of Mankato. 7 Volunteers spent the morning at the Welcome Inn and Theresa House clearing weeds, trimming trees, and planting flowers! Hilltop HyVee donated the colorful plants that now cheer up our shelters.
Mankato is blessed with a very active United Way and some very high quality community organizations. The United Way Day of Action is a perfect example of how they are here to help and support our community as a whole by supporting organizations like ours. They truly embody their motto, “Live United.”
All these great things that happen in our community are thanks to our neighbors helping where they can to make this a better place for everyone.
