From a trial run in 2016, United Way of Hastings (UWH), Minnesota now provides weekend meal packs for over 170 students a week even during the pandemic.
At UWH, this is how we work in the community - assess a need, bring collaborative partners together, implement a solution, adjust based on feedback, and provide sustaining support.
UWH started as the United Fund in 1964 and helped set a precedent for compassionate support and care. Over the past 50+ years our core values and mission have remained the same. We continue to help people and families right here in the Hastings area.
In 2021, United Way of Hastings (UWH) continued to mobilize resources to support those in crisis as a result of the pandemic and supported the community throughout the year via initiatives and partnerships. Donor dollars ensured UWH helped Hastings by:
UWH serves residents of Minnesota's Independent School District #200 including Hastings, Hampton, Miesville, New Tier, Vermillion, Welch, and a portion of Washington County. Every dollar raised here, stays here!
