BEMIDJI — The United Way of Bemidji Area is encouraging local businesses, church and school groups, service organizations and other community organizations to participate in a Week of Caring.

This flexible event allows businesses and groups the opportunity to choose a week, before the end of December, to hold a donation drive to support local nonprofit partners and demonstrate the power of caring. For ideas on donation drives, visit UnitedWayBemidji.org/Week-Caring.

The United Way is encouraging community members to learn more about their local partner agencies and provide the opportunity to give back to those in need, a release said.

“Our success is because of you — the hand-raisers and doers who help to build a stronger, caring community through your advocacy, your support, and your volunteerism,” Denae Alamano, executive director of the United Way of Bemidji Area, said in the release.

Businesses and organizations are encouraged to share their donation drives on social media and tag United Way of Bemidji Area.
