GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Today, we spoke with Kathy Hollenhorst, senior vice president, Marketing, Greater Twin Cities United Way and Cam Findlay, an executive with Medtronic, one of the top five corporate givers to United Way Campaigns in the Twin Cities region. They gave us a preview of the upcoming United Way Action Day on August 22.
Greater Twin Cities United Way addresses our community's most critical issues by focusing on three key areas: Basic Needs, Education and Health. We attack poverty on multiple, interconnected fronts to achieve lasting change - through 10 measurable goals - by collaborating with business, government and nonprofit organizations to create solutions and carry out our call to action to LIVE UNITED by encouraging everyone to Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
United Way serves people living in or near poverty in nine counties: Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott and western Washington.
Join the movement. LIVE UNITED. For more information visit unitedwaytwincities.org or call 612-340-7400.
