Love United Iredell is a powerful 14 day community engagement event that unites around local causes and nonprofits. Love United Iredell is a great way for nonprofits to educate the community on their mission, sending home the message on why it is important to connect to a local nonprofit. Ultimately this impacts numerous lives within our county!!!
Last year this effort raised $33,442.35 and ended up producing 18 unique articles about agencies which were distributed to the public. We are VERY proud of the 27 nonprofits who participated and learned along with us. This year we are focused on 11 amazing projects with the potential to have a big impact. Our goal is to try engaging the community on a deeper level so that long-term relationships can be built and fostered. Ultimately, by deepening the relationships this means a greater potential to have individuals involved in your mission!
Love United Iredell plans to partner with Iredell Statesville Schools (and other companies when they choose to do so) to allow each school/company to choose if they would like to “adopt” a non-profit during the month of March and early April. For example: different classrooms/departments could host a friendly competition to bring in the most boxes of cereals or host a penny wars competition. Proceeds and goods go directly to the adopted nonprofit and support local residents in their pursuit of health, education and/or financial stability.
All nonprofits will be participating in a media campaign blitz April 11-25th. United Way of Iredell County would love to have local non-profits involved with missions surrounding education, financial stability or health involved. Please help us to fully fund all of these 11 agencies, so that they are able to influence as many lives as possible!
