In an effort to create a new generation of philanthropists to continue the development and expansion of the many charitable efforts underway in Northwest Arkansas, the United Way of Northwest Arkansas has created a program called “Generation Give” that will educate and train future community leaders and contributors.
This program will get underway with a kickoff event at Fast Lane Entertainment in Lowell on Tuesday, Feb. 23 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. There will be a short presentation by the United Way with appetizers and drinks served. Afterwards, folks who want to bowl can bowl for $5, with half of the proceeds going to the United Way of Northwest Arkansas.
The target group for this program is adults under the age of 45 who are seeking to get more involved as volunteers, advocates or donors in the community’s non-profit endeavors.
United Way of Northwest Arkansas serves Benton, Madison, McDonald, and Washington counties in partnership with numerous organizations focusing on promoting good education, income, and health for the people of Northwest Arkansas. The mission of the organization is to mobilize the caring power of the community to build better lives. For more information about becoming involved with United Way of Northwest Arkansas, please contact the organization at (479) 750-1221. You can also visit their website at unitedwaynwa.org.
