So much depends on your pledge. In addition, there are many ways you can impact our community’s future through a gift. 

Upcoming Events

October is Dining United Month
Support your community by dining out at participating restaurants in the month of October. These Dining United restaurants have pledged to donate a percentage of food and beverage sales to the United Way of 1000 Lakes community campaign. The money raised stays in the Itasca Area and helps United Way work to attack social issues, like ensuring kids stay on track to graduate, people are healthier and have strong financial futures.
