GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Heartland United Way is encouraging people share with others and make a donation as part of its annual campaign that will locally impact over 20,000 people in Hall, Hamilton, Howard and Merrick Counties.

Heartland United Way’s annual campaign is chaired by DJ and Kathy Eihusen who are asking YOU to find a WAY to help people – people who need first opportunities and second chances. It’s that simple and that impactful to have your donation stay close to home giving help and hope to local children and families.

This year, United Way donors will have a chance to win a 2021 Jeep Gladiator Willys 4x4, donated by Tom and Kim Dinsdale. A donation of $260 is required to have a chance at winning

The Heartland United Way will draw 25 Key Winners who will then have a 1 in 25 chance to win beginning Nov. 18.
