United Acts of Kindness Week is November 16-20. During that week, United Way of Southwest Minnesota (UWSWMN) will be encouraging spreading acts of kindness to everyone. Typically during the time leading up to this week, we collect hygiene items to pack and distribute to local human resource organizations to assist their clients. However, this year to due to COVID, we are encouraging monetary and gift card donations. By purchasing these gift cards, this will allow local human service providers and schools to purchase hygiene items that often are not donated but continue to be an ongoing need. Gift cards and monetary donations will be distributed during United Acts of Kindness Week.
Gift cards from grocery stores, hardware stores, dollar stores, gas stations and restaurants are all being accepted through November 16. Gift cards are a great way to support both the individuals throughout our communities who are in need and our local business owners. By supporting the drive, you will allow local human service providers and schools to purchase items that often are not donated but are in high demand.
All gift cards and monetary donations will stay local and will benefit youth, families and seniors in the UWSWMN service area. Donations can be sent to: United Way of SW MN, PO Box 41, Marshall, MN 56258. Note “Gift Card Drive” on the memo line.
