Sandhills State Bank donated $2,000 to United Way of Western Nebraska serving Box Butte and Dawes Counties to support United Way’s Day of Caring which is scheduled for October 5 at First Baptist Church in Alliance. During the event, approximately 60 volunteers will package 20,000 meals that will be distributed throughout Box Butte and Dawes Counties to feed insecure children and families primarily through the backpack programs and food pantries.
They are also seeking sponsors to assist with the Day of Caring food packaging event.
Monies raised for the event are through grants and donations specific to Day of Caring and additional sponsors are needed. Current sponsors for Day of Caring are Farm Credit Services of America, Wells Fargo and UPS. Monetary donations or sponsorships for the Day of Caring event are welcome and may be mailed to United Way, P.O. Box 617, Alliance, NE 69301.
