$15,000 Raised to Feed Children during Day of Action

Each year near the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the United Way rallies communities around the world. This year the Valley United Way and local companies along with Valley schools helped address the lack of meal benefits for Valley-based children.

We celebrated in a spectacular project known as “Give a Duck” at the R.D. Scinto Towers.

Rubber ducks were sold for $5 each as part of the 2014 Day of Action. For each $5 donation, a local child in need will be fed for a day. We had a tremendous way filling the fountain at Corporate Drive.

The special fundraiser raised $15, 264.00 which will provide 3,053 meals to Valley children in need.

“The ducks in the fountain represented the children that will be fed this summer. We were able to raise awareness to this issue, reach out and make a difference.”
