Mission Statement: Uniting people and resources to improve lives and strengthen communities in Southwest Minnesota. We serve people living in Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, Yellow Medicine and portions of Cottonwood, Lac qui Parle, Nobles and Redwood Counties in Minnesota.
We are so excited to celebrate I Love to Read Month throughout the month of February!

All of the schools in our service area have also been challenged to participate in I Love to Read Month by participating in different contests—class that reads the most minutes, student reading photos, and creating a bookmark!
All children in our service area are encouraged to participate in our Bookmark Design Contest! The bookmark template can be found on our website, on the main page, www.unitedwayswmn.org. Bookmark illustration could include something reading related—favorite book, favorite place to read, picture of the library, etc.
Photo/Copy submissions of the bookmark can be sent to: Sarah.Kicmal@UnitedWaySWMN.org by Thursday, February 15. Most unique bookmark will win a United Way t-shirt and their bookmark will be printed out to share with his/her classmates or friends!
